ISSUEdance (1)The Monaco Tunisia Association will present ISSUE, Eugénie Andrin’s new dance performance, on December 1 at Théâtre des Variétés. The performance will start at 6:30 pm. 

The choreography was born from a meeting with the journalist Shiran Ben Abderrazak, author of the Diary of a Defeat, which is at the heart of the production and represents a voice of the Tunisian people who have risen up in revolt. It’s a message that encourages us to fight, to not be afraid.

The movements were enriched during a Master Class for Tunisian professional dancers at Villa Dar Eyquem in Hammamet, a town in southeast Tunisia known for its beaches. The production, with visual artist Roxane Ducruet, follows the aftermath of the Arab Spring as a reflection in flesh and bone on the fragility of revolutionary ideals and the price of freedom.

A game between the dancers and a set of suspended doors questions these new thresholds, these tests, and shows a way in a labyrinth full of obstacles. In turn, these doors grow open to our fears, the abyss, the illusion, but also the dream, the hopes, the truth.

The eventual outcome of the Tunisian revolt is uncertain, but the determination of the Tunisian people does not weaken, the association says.

The evening includes an overview of the show’s creation before the performance and a post-show Q&A with the choreographer. Tickets: €25.
