Words must hit hard, harder than the bullet of a Kalashnikov.

Shéda

Dieudonné Niangouna, Les bruits de la rue

You are looking at a performance from our archive

The Congolese director Dieudonné Niangouna creates theatre in which the word has the strength of a lion and the ferocity of a panther. His words are designed to hit hard, harder than the bullet of a Kalashnikov. In Shéda, Niangouna employs his expressive, hybrid and vivid language to create a place of refuge after an ‘apocalypse’. The characters gathering there embody fallen gods, heroes from bygone times, who have returned as ghosts or in dreamlike apparitions. In Shéda, they try to redeem their humanity, while sharing their personal histories and their memories of the end of the world.
