Mega Mingiedi and Androa Mindré Kolo bring a piece of Kinshasa to Urban Sceno Dakar
Aux Scénographies Urbaines 2012 | 2013, Mega Mingiedi et Androa Mindre imaginent Kinshasa à Dakar
For one month, from mid-December 2012 to mid-January 2013, SPARCK artists Méga Mingiedi (Kinshasa) and Androa Mindre (Kinshasa and Strasbourg) lived and worked in Dakar, as part of an international, multi-participant residency titled Urban Scenographies. Together with 25 creators from Africa, Europe and the Americas, they explored issues of urban public and common space, body politics and theatricality in one part of the city: the neighbourhood of Ouakam. In this context, they jointly developed a performance project titled Malewa, in which they turned themselves into living, breathing incarnations of temporary, movable restaurant/meeting places set up on street corners in Kinshasa.
