    What’s on Sunday 9 July 2017

    Sacre Printemps
    9 July 2017 | 1pm, 2pm & 3pm
    Open Eye Gallery’s Winter Garden Space | FREE

    Choreographers Aïcha M’Barek and Hafiz Dhaou create a visceral streetscape of today’s Tunisia, inspired by the pressures of building a new society. ‘Sacre’ is based on the life-sized silhouettes from the late Parisian street artist Bilal Berreni, which appeared in Tunis after the revolution six years ago. Dancers jostle, fight and compete among the 30 cut-out sculptures as well as joyfully uniting different voices in to one hope.
