Faustin Linyekula will be onstage all alone, surrounded by a circle of spotlights. You will watch the ropy muscles of his arms, the giant muscles of his thighs, as the language of his movements—at times energetic, at times horrific in its precision and intensity—guides you through the country where he was born and still lives, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Linyekula runs a dance studio in the city of Kisangani, which since his birth has seen two wars and decades of shaky government. That brutal history, along with the country’s rich culture of music and dance, will be channeled for an hour into Linyekula’s tiny circle of light. SM
