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.

Clash (15)

9 July 2017 6pm

The Box at FACT | £8/£5 for members


Director: Mohamed Diab.

Arabic with English subtitles.

Egypt’s turbulent recent social upheavals, which saw Hosni Mubarak’s decades-long rule come to an end in a people-led revolution in 2011, is the focus of Mohamed Diab’s gripping new film, Clash. Set almost entirely within the confines of a police truck, Clash is claustrophobic, hard-hitting and fuelled by an ambitious scope that belies its minimal setting.
