Abstract

While grassroots theatre brings together perpetrators and survivors of the Rwandan genocide, government-driven campaigns can manipulate theatre for reconciliation to serve its own nationalist agenda. The Mutabaruka company use their performances in Burundi to resurrect/construct the identity of a precolonial Rwanda; the Mashirika theatre focus on reconciling the Hutu, Tutsi, and Twa.
