Born in 1978 in Paris, Dalila Boitaud Mazaudier has been an author and director for the Compagnie Uz et Coutumes for fifteen years. She began her artistic career in Uzeste in 1999 with the artist Bernard Lubat. In 2000, she follows the training of the Groupe Français d'Éducation Nouvelle (GFEN) and becomes a facilitator of writing workshops. She was a member of the Collège des arts de la rue for the Direction Générale de la Création Artistique (DGCA) between 2015 and 2017.

Dalila Boitaud Mazaudier is an artist committed to the transmission of the memory of the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda through theater plays.

In 2013, she was awarded the "Authors of Public Spaces" grant from the Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques (SACD) for her work HAGATI YACU / ENTRE NOUS; an urban poem on the war of the sun and melancholy, in memory of the Tutsis in Rwanda. This play, adapted in part from Boubacar Boris Diop Murambi's novel The Book of Bones, is presented in many cities in France, Benin and Rwanda. 

In 2014, she participates in Kwibuka 20 (the twentieth commemorations of the genocide) at the invitation of the Rwandan government, and stages with Rwandan artists Le Café Littéraire which inaugurates these three months of commemorations. She co-hosts on-site conferences with Boubacar Boris Diop and Koulsy Lamko on the theme of Arts, Commitments, Scenes of Resistance and Truth.


In Rwanda, Dalila Boitaud Mazaudier cooperates with the Ishyo Arts Center, the Ministry of Culture, the National Commission for the Fight against Genocide (CNLG), the French Institute, the University of Rwanda and the Ibuka Association around the project entitled Arts Memory and Public Spaces. In this capacity, she partners with many universities in France and contributes to the transmission of the memories of the genocides.

Between 2016 and 2019, she writes and directs many plays on the same subject including SOUK, another history of the Maghreb, YESTERDAY TODAY AND AFTER TOMORROW, EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON THE NUMBER OF COWS.
