This is Kamel Touati’s first and only show in the United States. Space is limited, so please buy tickets early.
In his new one-man-show “In-Aach” (which means re-animation is Arabic), Kamel Touati talks about the angst of the average Tunisian in face of troubling and uncertain times in Tunisia. "Many artistic works have been devoted to the situation in the country since the revolution. But all that has been done is to translate what is going on and communicate it this to the public. I do not like to transpose what already exists. I have my own vision of the role of the artist, which I set to work in this show , "says the artist.
"There will be many on stage props, lighting effects , sensations to share and a new way of presenting the news of the country and the problems which prevent Tunisians from feeling better ," he promises.
