Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Inspired by the hopes and pressures of building a new civil society, choreographers Aïcha M’Barek and Hafiz Dhaou create a visceral streetscape of today’s Tunisia.

Featuring life-sized silhouettes by seminal street artist Bilal Berreni (Zoo-project), which appeared on Tunis’ main avenue after the revolution, Sacré Printemps! celebrates the diverse individuals who fought for their civil rights. Five dancers jostle, fight and compete among over 30 cut-out sculptures but also joyfully unite in their strife to join different voices and individualities into one hope.


Please note that these performances are happening at the British Library square, NW1 2DB.
