Description “Coup Fatal is a classical recital. It’s also a dance spectacular. And a fashion show, and a piece of music theatre, and an anthropological voyage through Congolese music and culture. Heaven knows how you’d classify this. And heaven knows how the show’s artistic director managed to find 13 supremely gifted musicians who can also dance athletically, sing in goosebump-inducing harmonies, and rock a garishly coloured zoot suit… a staggering, thought-provoking show, and one that’s greeted by a well-deserved standing ovation.”
