Originating from Rwanda, a British national based in Marseille, Dorothée Munyaneza began her career as a singer (hers is the voice in one of the songs from the soundtrack of the film Hotel Rwanda), while beginning a relationship with dance and theatre right from the start, founding her own company in 2013: Kadidi.

While in Samedi Détente, her first acclaimed work, she eviscerates her own biography to tell the painful experiences of Rwandan genocide through impetuous poetry, she describes Unwanted as: «Now I want the voices of the women of my and other countries to be heard, voices of women whose bodies are or have been the battlefield of men’s lust for power and sexual violence. I will meet some of them, listen to them, observe them, share my time with them, so that in my own way, I can tell their stories».

The result is her personal experience, reflected in a chorus of voices of women victims of violence. A tour de force of dance, theatre and music, accompanied by the voice of a soprano and the sound machines of French composer Alain Mahé. A song handed down from mothers to daughters like a dress: «Composed of clean lines and impalpable, yet robust and durable fabric». So that no story is forgotten.
