A dancer and chore­og­ra­pher, born in 1974 in the Demo­cratic Repub­lic of the Congo, Faustin Linyekula slips ef­fort­lessly be­tween cul­tures, one day stag­ing Bérénice at the Comédie–Française and the next work­ing with Con­golese rap artists. In Drums and Dig­ging, he re­turns to his child­hood in a vil­lage where his fa­ther taught school. The de­sire to dance sprouted in the hell of a coun­try ripped apart by civil war. The fig­ure of dic­ta­tor Mobutu hangs over a per­for­mance which mar­ries dance, song and pup­petry. Stage de­sign is by the Ger­man ar­chi­tect Bär­bel Müller. 28th April to 2nd May at the Théâtre des Abbesses ( Paris ).
