Avignon Festival: African artists grab the spotlight
Issued on: Modified:
Encore! has decamped to the sunny south of France to check out the country’s oldest arts festival. Every summer Avignon attracts thousands of visitors to its official selection of theatrical productions and fringe events, known as the "Off". This year's edition is shining a light on dramatic talent from Sub-Saharan Africa. Olivia Salazar-Winspear sits down with Dorothée Munyaneza, the creator and performer of the powerful show "Unwanted", where she revisits painful memories from Rwanda.
Thanks to Avignon Townhall.
