Visa issues plague Walker Art Center’s new season

One of the highlights of the Walker Art Center’s performing arts season this fall was to be a mini-festival of new Congolese music and dance.

Unfortunately the music-half of the festival has had to cancel, due to “visa-related issues.”

Staff Benda Bilili, a group of street musicians who live in and around the grounds of the zoo in Kinshasa, has had to cancel its entire North American tour.

The documentary of their story, however, will still screen at the Walker on Thursday, September 22, for free.

The dance-half of the mini-festival, Faustin Linyekula and Studios Kabako’s presentation of “more more more … future” is set for September 23 and 24.
