The story of a man, both Tunisian and French, who tells of his complex identity.
The story of a man, both Tunisian and French, who tells of his complex identity. A reflection on movement, music and chanting, this performance is about the pain of exile, the impossibility of return and changing history. Six years after the beginning of the “Arab Spring” with the revolution in Tunisia, respected choreographer Radhouane el Meddeb returned to his home country to create this thought provoking piece with artists who took part in the revolution.
Tackling questions about exile, absence, and solitude this poetic dialogue with Tunisian history is told through the medium of dance. Representing the vibrant cultural scene of Tunisa el Meddeb will take to the stage with his ensemble, accompanied by the live music of the outstanding singer Mohamed Ali Chebil and pianist Selim Arjoun.
