Mbongui Square
A biannual Art Event organized by Kiandanda Dance Theater in partnership with African America Art and Culture Complex, in the Hall of Culture.

Mbongui Square is an Art event that gathers dancers, musicians, visual artists and actors from the Bay Area and across the world for a sharing of their art and talent. The event calls for the restoration of the Mbongui. Mbongui is the kongo (Republic of Congo) language word that refers to the central square in traditional Congolese villages. The Mbongui served as a communal meeting place where neighbors and families passed on stories and legends that served to teach and to preserve knowledge. The village center was a place of discourse and a place of hospitality, where wise words and honest counsel could unravel that which was twisted up. Living on the periphery or the outside of the square is not what is being advocated. What Mbongui Square needs is a convergence to facilitate interchange between people without distinction of race and gender but just a place where humans come together and share their stories, art and talent. Now is the time to return to the Mbongui, the time to take action and to show and speak about Arts and human connection.

This first edition will feature artists such as:

Dana Lawton (Dance/USA), Raissa Punkki (Dance/Finland), Latanya D Tigner (Dance/New Orleans), Mutual Aid Project (Jazz/USA), Daiane Da Silva (Dance/Brazil), Weidong Yang (Tai Chi-China/USA), Kiandanda Dance Theater (Dance/Republic of Congo), Ernest Jolly (Visual Art/USA) and more guest surprise.
