Nido Uwera


Of Rwandan parents, Nido Uwera was born in exile in Burundi, then settled in France in 1992.

Fascinated by different bodily expressions, she continued her training with Elsa Wolliaston and Pierre Doussaint, with whom she danced for several years, as well as Robyn Orlin, Koffi Koko, Ismael Ivo, Nicole Ponzio, Yoshi Oida...

Choreographer and dancer, she created Mpore, her association, through which she transmits traditional Rwandan dances both to members of the Rwandan diaspora and to anyone wishing to learn them. Her stories from yesterday and today give strength and momentum.

Other artistic collaborations include  Ariane Mnouchkine’s Les éphémères, Catherine Decastel’s Dieu venge les Siens, Pierre Doussaint’s Les Masses Merveilleuses and Tonia Shilling’s Blue God.
