Dorothée Munyaneza

Based in Marseille, Dorothée Munyaneza is a multi-disciplinary artist using music, song, text and movement to deal with rupture as a dynamic force. Munyaneza draws from real stories seizing body, memory and our times to create a space of resonance.


Originally from Rwanda, Dorothée Munyaneza moved to England with her family in the summer of 1994 at the age of 12. She trained at the Jonas Foundation in London, studied music and social sciences in Canterbury, before moving to France.

In 2006, she meets François Verret, they collaborate on Sans Retour, Ice, Cabaret, and Do you remember, no I don’t. Since then, other collaborations have included Radouan Mriziga, Alain Mahé, Jean-François Pauvros, Robyn Orlin, Ko Murobushi, Nan Goldin, Stéphanie Coudert, Rachid Ouramdane, Maud Le Pladec, Alain Buffard, Maya Mihindou and Ben LaMar Gay. 


In 2013, Munyaneza founds in Marseille the Kadidi company. The company’s repertoire includes Samedi Détente (2014), Unwanted (2017) Mailles (2020), a capella (2022) and Toi, moi, Tituba… (2023).

In 2020 Dorothée Munyaneza translates Hopelessly Devoted by Kae Tempest (formerly known as Kate Tempest). Published by L’Arche Éditeur, Inconditionnelles will be staged by Dorothée in November 2024 at the invitation of the Bouffes du Nord in Paris.
