Abstract:
This thesis aims to identify how theatre is used in post-genocide Rwanda, specifically between 2004 and 2009 during the span of doctoral research. Although I initially selected the title, 'Theatre for Reconciliation in Post-Genocide Rwanda' to frame my inquiry into how theatre can be used for healing in a post-conflict zone, I found theatre to be one of various methods used by a conflict-torn nation to create a renewed sense of national identity, forge fresh relationships between survivors and perpetrators and encode systems of governance, among other objectives beyond reconciliation.
