Anosmia  is a text piece build around ‘Politics Of The Nose’ - a poem by David Mwambari (RW). ‘Politics Of The Nose’ is a poetic tableau vivant about the events of the Rwandan genocide in 1994, nearly 20 years ago.
Anosmia wants to reflect on the almost absurd fact that a tiny part of the body, the nose, played a keyrole in the genocide: the length of a nose was decisive to classify the enemy. Even if your passport said that you were ‘Hutu’, if you had a long and thin nose you were considered a Tutsi, so you’d had to hide or run for your life.
