"I was born in Göttingen.
On my birth record, I was assigned Runda, my father's place of birth.
Since the administrative reform of 2006, Runda is no more.
Today, this birthplace is called Kamonyi-Muhanga.
I was in Kigali for the first time when I was two and a half years old.
Mama, Sie sind alle schwarz!
Du auch mein Kind, du auch!
Beyond seas, between ochre and nacre, I trace the lines of the multitudes that I am, skin and moult, always in motion, this gives strength and momentum. In these places of multiple births, deaths and resurgences, I dare the possible."
Dorothée Munyaneza is at residence at the Camargo Foudndation in January 2021. She imagines this creation in a hybrid way, between a sound creation, a performance and a concert.
