About Alain Platel, Fabrizio Cassol, Rodriguez Vangama & Serge Kakudji: Coup Fatal

Inspired by the grand gestures of the rakish "sapeurs"- the dandies of Kinshasa, Coup Fatal features Congolese counter-tenor Serge Kakudi, with an orchestra of 12 musicians from Kinshasa- engaging with the repertoire of various baroque composers. This new musical imtegrates baroque phrases with traditional and popular Congolese music, rock and jazz. 

Compser Fabrizio Cassol and musician Rodriguez Vangama are the musical directors, while director Alain Platel and dancer Romain Guion seek to give the piece its theatrical form. The set is designed in collaboration with the artist Freddy Tsimba, who creates vast, disturbing sculptures using cartridge cases he collects in Congolese war zones. 

An artistic platform for a variety of chorepgraphers, les ballets C de la B enables artists from various disciplines and backgrounds to take part in the creative process, upholding its motto: this dance is for the world and the world is for everyone. KVS is a city theatre in Brussels. Working in a diverse city, It incorporates the topics of poverty and exclusion into its programming as well as colonial history.
