A Excerpt from NKISI NKONDI: Sacred Kongo Sculpture Directed and Written by Byb Bibene, Artistic Director of Kiandanda Dance Theater.
We Are especially Excited about The Nkisi Nkondi Project!
During a visit to the Musée du Quai Branly, choreographer Byb Bibene discovered the Nkisi Nkondi statue from the Kongo people in central Africa, a divine figure representing the moral and spiritual codes as well as political and religious symbols of power, resistance, fear, and defiance. Through this new work, Bibene questions the function of dances by the community - the ceremonial and sacred and those solely reserved for the initiated.
Byb Chanel Bibene is a choreographer and performer working in theater and contemporary dance. His own technical and aesthetic sensibility is rooted in the culture and dances of his country of origin. He has toured and performed internationally with companies originating from Africa, England, France and the USA.
It is official, Chef Eskender of Radio Africa Kitchen is going to be BLESSING Us with his culinary genius.
If you have not yet had the pleasure of indulging in Chef Eskender's delicacies, you are in for a TREAT! For those that are familiar with his cuisine, you know there is never a dull dish on his table!
Originally from Ethiopia, Chef Eskender arrived in San Francisco in the late 80’s where he spent the next 20 years working in the Bay Area with such luminary chefs as Jeremiah Tower, Joyce Goldstein, Nancy Oaks, Daniel Peterson and Daniel Humm. During this time, inspired by these great chefs, he began experimenting with different food preparations of his own.
Chef Eskender is going to take guests on a tantalizing culinary journey, fusing traditional African dishes with a modern day interpretation in the Bay Area's unique setting. We can't wait to see what masterpieces he serves!
