Penda Diouf is passionate about writing and the intimacy that live performance can create between hitherto unknown people, and enjoys writing about forgotten or invisible stories. The question of identity and exile runs through her texts, as does the idea of care and reparation. The relationship between fiction and politics guides her artistic approach.

For the past 9 years, she has also been co-organising the "Jeunes textes en liberté" festival to support playwrights and promote a diversity of narratives, stories and forms.
