Dorothée Munyaneza

Toi, moi, Tituba

English, French & Kinyarwanda with German & English translation

12.8. ● Beyond the Stage with Nedjma Hadj Benchelabi

Minimum age: 12 years

Duration 70 min

How can we bring something to life if it is no longer there? Munyaneza creates a space for remembrance to resonate. She dances and sings on behalf of all those whose existence was denied by the colonial system. The work celebrates unheard, untold stories and lives, Elsa Dorlin's Guyanese great great grandmother, or Tituba, a Caribbean woman persecuted in the Salem witch trials. The music is by oud player and electronic music producer Khyam Allami. A living archive emerges in the interplay of sound, movement, light and shadow, revealing and sharing repressed knowledge.
