Roxette Chikua and Michel Kiyombo entered the performing arts landscape as two new makers who address their Congolese roots in their creations. KunstZ offers their productions as DOUBLE BILL: A double dose of questions and trials that go hand in hand with the search for your own story.

 

In the dance performance Matchombe, Michel Kiyombo looks back on his own childhood in Congo, his coming home to Belgium and in the meantime discovering fatherhood. On stage, he tells the story of his birth and how he came to earth as a small, vulnerable being. Through dance he grows into the man he is today. But what remains of the frailty in him? Now he is a father himself, but what about his vulnerability?

 

Afro-futurism inspired Roxette Chikua when creating her solo dance performance Paradis, where she starts from her story and takes the viewer on an identity quest based on dance and fashion. On stage card  them with movement on difficult themes. Together with her we discover and recognize the different dimensions of a young woman of color who wants to shape her own life, by breaking free from everything that society considers 'normal'.
