The primary function of ritual art in the African continent is to reaffirm the truth and the presence of spirituality in all facets of human life. All the force of that emotion is reflected in the cults destined to establish a constant and direct relationship between the inhabitants of the earth and the Creator. The works of African ritual art are elegant and powerful, conceptual and pure, elaborate and timeless, complex and tense. They highlight its beauty, its simplicity, its energy and its philosophical dimension.

Friday 27th March – Life is Rocanrol
The last monologue of Miguel Ángel Rodríguez since he decided to go on stage without his band, ‘Los Mojinos Escozíos’. He tells how at the end of a concert of his band, he enters his dressing room reeking of Rock and Roll. While he removes his leopard rags and rusty necklaces, he not only undresses on the outside, but he also undresses in body and soul and confesses how hard it is to live being a rocker. What does his mother think of his hair, his clothes and his tattoos? How does a guy who has a group educate his children? What does a Rock Star do when it’s time to be president of his neighbourhood community? These and many other questions to be resolved.
