This week: Dance is an attempt to remember my name

Congolese choreographer Faustin Linyekula was shocked at how Africa was portrayed in a ballet that was intended to become the only negro ballet in history.

The ballet “The Creation of the World” (La création du monde) was composed in France in 1923, just after World War I to announce a new dawn, after so much death and destruction.

Faustin decided to reconstruct this ballet, in an attempt he says, to remember his name.
