Kuzikiliza

Pitcho Womba Konga / Skinfama, KVS & ARSENAAL/LAZARUS

Kuzikiliza – “making yourself heard” in Swahili – is a multilingual, interdisciplinary performance that causes communication and its mechanisms to wobble. Pitcho Womba Konga’s starting point was Patrice Lumumba’s speech to mark Congo’s independence on 30 June 1960 – a speech that is still topical today. For surely behind the independence of a country lies the emancipation of an entire people; and surely, behind the emancipation of a people, lies the independence of every human being? How do we reconcile the present and the past while the process of decolonisation is still ongoing?
