Chronicle of a young Kinois

The actor, director and writer Michael Disanka (1987) is one of the most inspiring of today’s Congolese voices. Since studying at the National Institute for the Arts in Kinshasa, where he was born, Disanka has emerged as a true chronicler of his generation. In this production with the working title 'Sept Mouvements Congo', he reports on the years 2016 and 2017 in words, images and music. The,theme is the road to change, with hope as an essential foundation, on a residue of despair.

Five young artists from the Collectif d’Artd’Art sing of their rage and fear and dance to save their lives. They mock the harsh reality of everyday life in the Congo in a story that is evidence of their turbulent existence. Not a single aspect of life in this part of the world escapes their tirade.
