For his latest play the celebrated choreographer and director Faustin Linyekula has adapted Éric Vuillard’s story Congo. King Leopold of Belgium wishes to establish a colony as a private company. Following the Berlin Conference of 1884, work must begin. Indeed: Congo does not exist. It is just a large river and a forest. Linyekula’s powerful works channel memories and combat their extinction. They trace the consequences of decades of war and violence.
