An explosive, hybrid and site-specific project that shapes itself through perfomances and music in a storytelling that doesn't belong to a place or time. It's a dramaturgy full of prophecy, desire of transformation and soul searching.

Just like every human being has African ancestors, Jupiter is sure, all the music has African ancestors. That's why Jupiter & Okwess bring back to light the unknown music inheritance of Congo, diving into the modernity.
