How can we express the physical and mental repercussions of rape used as an instrument of war? The choreographer Dorothée Munyaneza set off in search of those women who had been subjected to mistreatment during the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda. In Unwanted, she confronts us with pain and anguish that has been perpetuated by conflicts that have never ceased to exist.

Summer 1975. A young man is hitchhiking toward Caen. The driver who stops has an unusual look: he is bald, with wire-rimmed glasses, a crew neck shirt, and unbounded curiosity about his young passenger. They trade numbers before parting ways. Three years later, a book of interviews is published, featuring our young hitchhiker, Thierry Voetzel, and famed philosopher Michel Foucault, who remains anonymous.
