Kiandanda Dance
Taboo and Heroes, explores the situation of the wars that struck the Republic of Congo in the late 1990's in a multimedia performance, featuring modern and traditional dance, interactive video design and live contemporary music. Taboo and Heroes addresses the reality and consequences of violence and corruption through the specific experiences of Byb Chanel Bibene. Bringing together dance and theater performers, an original music score, set design and video elements, the piece aims to transport the audience into the charged atmosphere of conflict that permeated, and still echoes in everyday life in the Republic of Congo. This piece transposes the Congolese environment on stage. Exploring the subject of victims of war and the lack of freedom of expression due to irresponsible dictatorial powers and the neo-colonial influences of western powers, choreographer Bibene, as a survivor of the Congolese war, intends to demonstrate the essence of these dramatic situations of war, which are lived by thousands of people throughout the world. This project is intended to lead people to pay more attention to what is going on in the world because a collective effort can help find solutions and lead to a better life not only in Africa but also in the rest of the world, ecologically, socially, politically and humanly.
