Marine Leduc

Marine Leduc is a freelance journalist in France and Romania.
Before going to university, she hesitated between two paths: journalism or theatre. She took the first one, but the second one has always been part of her life. In 2013, she discovered the power of theatre when she did a voluntary mission in Palestine, making a research about Palestinian theatre and discovering how it can be used as a tool for struggle. Now living between France and Romania, she started to be interested in how theatre can break stereotypes and bring a political discourse to marginalised groups, such as Roma people.
In 2011 she wrote an MA thesis about how Roma people are represented in French literature, theatre and cinema, and how clichés were constructed through artistic pieces since centuries. She is currently documenting how Roma from all over Europe are using the same tools to reverse those representations.
