After Samedi Détente, in which Dorothée Munyaneza retraced her experiences of the bloody events of 1994 in her homeland of Rwanda, Unwanted blended the stories of victims of wartime rape in a symphony
of words, movements, songs and sounds. In Mailles, which is being premiered at Charleroi danse, Dorothée Munyaneza brings together six women she met at different stages of her life and who struck her with the strength of their commitment. Whether they are African-American or Haitian, Danish of Somali
origin, English or Brazilian, actors, singers, writers or flamenco dancers, they make
up a female chorus that is saturated with diversity, languages, sensibilities, cultures and memories. Together, though, they also have something to say about what it means to be a woman today. Mailles promises to
be a “universal tale made up of a mix of our personal stories”, a work that celebrates the beauty of “women undefeated by adversity, women who have taken for themselves something that they were denied”.
