Born in Rwanda, Dorothée Munyaneza left Kigali in 1994 when she was 12 to move to England. Then a British national, she studied music at the Jonas Foundation of London and Social Sciences in Canterbury before moving to France. With music, songs, dance and text, Dorothée Munyaneza finds inspiration in reality to explore the memory and the body, individual and collective ; to offer a voice to those who have been silenced ; to question the Tutsi genocide, violence to women, racial inequality. To break the silence and shed light on the scars of history.
