Marine Leduc

Freelance journalist in France and Romania.

Before going to university, I hesitated between two paths: journalism or theatre. I took the first one, but the second one has always been part of my life. In 2013, I discovered the power of theatre when I did a voluntary service in Palestine, making a research about Palestinian theatre and discovering how it can be use as a tool for struggle. Now living between France and Romania, I started to be interested in how theatre can break stereotypes and bring a political discourse to marginalised groups, such as Roma people.

As a matter of fact, in 2011, I wrote a master thesis about how Roma people are represented in French literature, theatre and cinema, and how clichés were constructed through artistic pieces. Today, I document how Roma people from all over Europe are using the same tools to reverse those representations.
