Wiame Awres, Malek Sebai

A world where women no longer need fear going out, or fear loving, and can finally have the freedom to realise their dreams... In the collective work "J'ai rêvé l'Algérie" (I dreamed Algeria), published by Barzakh, Wiame Awres is the author of the text "La Dernière Danse" (The Last Dance), imagining a world where women such as Asma, Hassina, Warda and Amira are all still alive. She is one of those behind the website Féminicides Algérie that provides a non-exhaustive list of the crimes committed against women throughout the country. Fifty-four femicides were registered in 2020, four since the beginning of 2021!
How to adapt that most classic of all classics, "Romeo and Juliet", in the midst of the health crisis in Tunisia?

A preview performed before a restricted audience, in application of the current health protocol in Tunisia.
