Performing Diaspora presents Kimpa Vita

Performing Diaspora presents ... 
Kimpa Vita! by Muisi-kongo Malonga 

Friday and Saturday at 8PM, Sunday at 7PM
Kimpa Vita! is a music, dance and theater narrative told through the dual lens of Kongolese and African American cultural arts traditions, exploring the controversial life of Kongolese prophet and martyr, Mama Kimpa Vita. At the heart of Kimpa Vita! are movement and poetry set to a musical score that layers the wailing cadence of African American spirituals with the textured harmonies of traditional Kongolese song and percussion.
