Toi, Moi... Tituba

dance
03—04.05.2024

As a black witch tried in the Salem trials of the 17th century, Tituba is the starting point for Dorothée Munyaneza's new performance, which tackles the question of memory and heritage. 

Tituba is a symbol of resistance to oppression, brought to life by Maryse Condé in her book Moi, Tituba, sorcière... in 1986. To pay tribute to her, and to all the voices and bodies erased, silenced and bruised by colonial oppression, Dorothée Munyaneza has created a body archive capable of collecting and honouring the experiences born of dispersion.  

Set to a text by feminist philosophy researcher Elsa Dorlin about Tituba, the performance moves between light and shadow, blurring the boundary between the present and the absent, in a costume and set designed by visual artist Sophie Coudert. She is accompanied by the distant voices of oral archives, a fragile thread of transmission whose power is restored by composer and oud player Khyam Allami. 

Toi, moi, Tituba is a collective solo, conceived as a journey across a hybrid space that is at once African, American, European and Caribbean, a space of traces, dreams and violence.

 

• Choreographer, artistic director, author and musician Dorothée Munyaneza (Kigali, 1982) is developing a fiery body of work. By taking hold of memory and the body, she starts from reality and carries the voices of those who are silenced, to make the silences heard and to see the scars of History. Munyaneza recently performed at the Kaaitheater with Mailles, and now returns with her latest creation.
