How can you speak about the unspeakable? Twenty years after fleeing the Rwandan Genocide as a young girl, Dorothée Munyaneza is ready to look back with her powerful performance piece Samedi détente. Conceived, written and performed by Munyaneza, the production (named for a popular Saturday morning radio program) comes to the Judy Morr Theater at Costa Mesa's Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Using spoken word, song and movement, Samedi détente explores the will to survive and to find happiness amidst unspeakable horrors. Accompanied by Ivorian dancer Nadia Beugé and French musician Alain Mahé, Munyaneza returns to the memories of her childhood with potent music, electrifying movement and dispassionate testimony.
This production is recommended for mature audiences.
