The Unwanted echoes war-time rape in Munyaneza’s documentary-theatre
At the Avignon Festival this year, Munyaneza’s stage-documentary with vocals and sound aggressively expose the violence meted out and received during the period of terror and the violence it left behind. It starts with a woman’s voice-off explaining how she was raped by Interhamwe militia as she fled the barbarity. She goes on to say how she became pregnant, had the child and was rejected by her family when she returned to Rwanda. And then how she rejected the child, a son.
