Born in Rwanda, Dorothée Munyaneza left Kigali when she was 12 to find refuge in the UK, before later moving to France. Singer, author and choreographer, she has been part of the international contemporary scene since the early 2000s. With Unwanted, she focuses on the stories of the women caught up in the genocide, specifically those who suffered rape. Rapes that gave birth to children traumatised by their own history and ostracised by the taboo of their origins. An intimate counterpoint to history, Unwanted delves into the heart of the unspeakable. With raw energy, Munyaneza embodies it without pathos or subterfuge.
