Festival of Lies
Faustin Linyekula, the contemporary dance visionary, returns to YBCA with an extraordinary dance theater experience: part installation, part party, part community event. In Festival of Lies, Linyekula, from the Democratic Republic of Congo, evokes “the ruins of his native land.” Amid a street-fair atmosphere, actors tell stories of daily life and lies of a country misled. Meanwhile, a band plays, audiences eat and drink, dancers create and destroy landscapes of urban detritus, and propaganda fills the air.
Thursday & Friday performances run a standard performance length. The Festival culminates on Saturday with the full, marathon-length event of approximately 6 hours.
