"Faustin is stepping forth as a young master artist whose wisdom and powers of truth-telling go far beyond his age."—Peter Sellars
Friends and artistic collaborators, director and choreographer Faustin Linyekula and stage director
Peter Sellars come together on the first anniversary of Occupy Wall Street to speak about each other’s work and the power of the arts as an agent for social and political change.
Through his innovative interpretations of classic works from Mozart to Sophocles, Peter Sellars has reshaped the way artists and audiences view performance. Faustin Linyekula has gained critical acclaim worldwide for his provocative work addressing the legacy of war and atrocities in his native Democratic Republic of the Congo where he remains a singular voice in contemporary performance. A unique conversation between two remarkable artists.
