Daniely Francisque

Born in Martinique, Daniely Francisque grew up in the Paris area, where she studied foreign languages and social sciences. She first approached artistic creation as an initiatory journey. Working from her personal history, she writes works that examine the idea of the collective through stories grappling with silence: in Cyclones, she unravels the denial of incest, and in Matrices, the transgenerational heritage of colonial violence. The stage, to her, is a place of exorcism.
