"A tale of interbreeding and its eternal wanderings, 10 years following the Tunisian revolution, the question of identity is ever-emerging. Speech is liberating. Words, song and dance all exalt a relationship with the peculiar world. A leitmotiv of metamorphosis and resistance: stemming from reality, life, womanhood, dancing, and the in-between shores to embrace the fantasized and diverse otherness. The stage becomes home of all possibilities, affirmation, reconciliation, transformation and liberation." Carthage Dance Festival 2021- Tunisia / 04 JUNE 2021 - By Mehdi Kochbati.
