AMIZERO KOMPAGNIE

Creations

Amizero Kompagnie is the first professional contemporary dance company in Rwanda. Created by the University Centre for Arts and Drama of the National University of Rwanda (NR), the company has since then developed its own autonomy with different partnerships in the region and with international structures. Winner of the silver medal at the 6th Jeux de la Francophonie in Lebanon, the company keeps developing its repertoire consistently with more than 10 dance and theatre plays created and showcased up today.

Amizero Kompagnie, whilst looking for new opportunities to grow, keeps questioning their work, adapting to the changes, movements and challenges raising in today’s society.
