Deus Nos Acudi

Ticket 300 MT

Body expression that seeks to question and dialogue about consumer societies and the place of the body today, revealed from its cultural universe.

But also how this has been perpetuated and applied throughout history, in maintaining dominance by power; where secularized religiosity, beliefs, deities, rituals, myths, etc., are interconnected in everyday life and how they are fragmented and can be used as one of the strategies for social control, directly affecting bodies and society as a whole, through of rules and standards.

Is the contemporary body free or controlled?

Original or imitated?

Is the body experience influenced by the cultural pattern to which it is inserted?

Pak Ndjamena does not see art in a linear but collaborative way having during his career collaborated with artists of various artistic genres and coming from multiple geographies. Even so, Pak Ndjamena does not consider himself fluent in any language nor belonging to a geographical territory dissociated from art. Despite being proud of his African roots he considers himself a world citizen and views art as a common language that enables one to communicate with counterparts from any place in the world. As a result of this vision Pak has travelled to more than 10 countries to exhibit his art in its various forms. With contemporary dance as the most prevalent art in his artistic career, Pak choreographed and performed more than 20 pieces and was the winner of the Mozal Arts & Culture Award 2019 in the dance category in Maputo, Mozambique.
