Faustin Linyekula

Sur les traces de Dinozord

In 2006, Faustin Linyekula paid homage to his friend Antoine Vumilia Muhindo, a writer and political prisoner in Kinshasa facing a death sentence. The piece told the story of Faustin’s hometown and childhood friends. Sur les traces de Dinozord picks up where the previous piece left off, with dancer Dinozord and Countertenor Serge Kakudji and the same questions that Faustin asked people in the streets and fields in 2006: what has become of your dreams in war-ravaged Congo?
