Radhouane El Meddeb

Facing the sea, for tears to turn into laughter

People gaze at the sea, onto this dynamic space between the continents – a space as fictional as it is real. “Facing the sea, for tears to turn into laughter” is the story of a Tunisian man who is also a Frenchman: choreographer Radhouane El Meddeb, who has lived in France since 1998. His multi-faceted identity is the starting point for an artistic journey to his country of origin. It is different now, in the wake of the revolution. El Meddeb meets politically engaged artists who are helping to generate the idea of a new Tunisia. What begins to emerge is a poetic dialogue with Tunisian history, told through the medium of dance.
