Faustin Linyekula is an artist with a “live-wire intensity” (The New York Times).
Scored with fragments of Mozart’s Requiem, metronomic taps on a typewriter, and live vocals by an opera star, In Search of Dinozord is a poetic, political fairy tale that begins, like all fairytales, with “once upon a time…”
From there, Faustin Linyekula and a small group of dancers and actors embark on a deeply personal journey as they search for what is left of their former dreams. In spoken word and solo dances, they delve into the wrenching history of the Congo, recount stories from their childhoods, and mourn the loss of a friend. In the process, they hope to fashion a new kind of myth that is a truer reflection of their lives.
