Dolores Dorantes

Dolores Dorantes

(Mexico, 1973)

The voices of women take centre stage in her work, forever myriad and equivocal.

Though Dolores Dorantes was scheduled to appear at the festival in 2012, death threats resulting from her journalistic work forced her to relocate to the US, which she was then not allowed to leave while applying for asylum. This year, she will be able to make it, living and working in Rotterdam for six weeks as a poet in residence. Dorantes' poetry constructs and deconstructs, remembers and forgets, putting into words the cruelty, pain and violence of the country she fled, yet also challenging those words. Still often suppressed in today's world, the voices of women take centre stage in her work, forever myriad and equivocal. Topical and political issues are always subtly present, too. Not only a poet, Dorantes also works as a journalist, a writing instructor, and a teacher in the Mahajrya Buddhist tradition.
