Tituba is a woman; she is black and a witch at a time when it is not good to be any of these things.
Dorothée Munyaneza finds her story thanks to the work of philosopher Elsa Dorlin and Maryse Condé's book entitled I, Tituba: Black Witch of Salem, and decides to use her own body to do justice to Tituba and to all the people who have simply gone unnoticed, erased from history and from the "colonial archives".
Toi, Moi, Tituba... is a collective solo, in which the body and voice of Dorothée Munyaneza – who is dancing and acting alone on the stage - become the body and voice of those who have endured violence, the denial of their identity, slavery and eventually oblivion.
At a time when adapting seems to be the best solution, Munyaneza suggests a work of resistance instead, asking and raising important questions about the relationship between violence, skin colour and gender.
For her, beauty exists in insubordination.
