Rwanda-born Dorothée Munyaneza, currently based in France, is an artist whose work examines the scars of history. Following her powerful Samedi Détente (Under the Radar 2016), which evoked Munyaneza’s personal memories and the generational wound of genocide in Rwanda, Unwanted, at the Baryshnikov Arts Center examines the physical and mental repercussions of rape used as an instrument of war. Performed alongside the ethereal melodies of experimental musician Holland Andrews (Portland, OR), and created in collaboration with French composer Alain Mahé and South African visual artist Bruce Clarke, Unwanted draws from stories of women survivors to investigate how the female body holds, moves, and operates within the confines of a lived trauma. Unwanted was developed, in part, during a BAC Artist Residency.

This performance is part of a big national US Tour. It will be presented at Festival Time Based Art/PICA, in Portland, OR (September 15-17), at Baryshnikov Art Center, in New York (September 21-22) ; and at Seuls en scène Festival, Princeton U. (September 26-27).

Dorothée Munyaneza is supported by FACE Contemporary Theater, a program developed by FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States with lead funding from Florence Gould Foundation, Institut français, and the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. Lead support of dance programming at BAC is provided by the Rudolf Nureyev Endowment. Major support for dance programming and activities provided by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and Harkness Foundation for Dance.
