An SF International Arts Festival Summer Series World Premiere

Religion Kitendi uses haute couture fashion as a point of departure to examine the prevailing legacy of the slave trade and European colonization of Africa. The piece invokes the worldview of Congolese sapeurs, dandily dressed men and women who endeavor to survive economic hardship and political turmoil by feeling good in their attire. There is an ironic humor in the sorrowful trend of people spending large sums of hard-earned money to seek joy and hope in kitendi (clothes). But these are acts of resilience that bring affirmative feelings of prosperity, and with them a sense of healing and belonging. Featuring the choreography of Kiandanda Dance Theater artistic director, Chanel “Byb” Bibene and an original score performed live by composer Manolo Davila.

Early Bird Discount (25% off) Ends at midnight on Saturday April 30.
