Carole Karemera (Rwanda) is an actress, director, saxophone player, contemporary dancer who has appeared in many internationally acclaimed film, theatre, television, and dance productions since 1996. Co-founder and Director of ISHYO Arts Centre (Rwanda), she initiates innovative projects with Rwandese and international artists. She is the former director of the Pan African Dance Festival and works currently as Deputy Secretary General of Arterial Network.

Formerly a dancer with the Wim Vandekeybus company, Carole is a Belgian actress of Rwandese origin who starred in the HBO-produced "Sometimes in April", a powerful drama about events in Rwanda in the Nineties written and directed by Raoul Peck, and in "Sounds of Sand", directed by Marion Hansel. The strength of her acting and her uncommon energy make her the perfect incarnation of Pamela (in "Black", by Pierre Laffargue, 2009).
