The Weight of a Woman is a poem full of questions. Thirty years after the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda, KVS face, theatre creator and Brussels’ first city poet Lisette Ma Neza reflects on the violence and its effects on one’s life and heart. 

Through words, songs, imagery, and dance, she wonders how much value a life still has after violence at a personal or mass scale? Whose lives are worth saving, whose lives seem to have less value? How do we continue to live? How do we forgive each other and ourselves? As a woman and as a human, these are questions of the heart, which she wants to ask her grandmothers. The poem is an attempt to pass the questions and answers to her little sisters.
