    Tunis is once again being swept by a revolution – a dance revolution!  Join what Facebook now assures us will be thousands of revelers as they perform the “Harlem Shake” Friday at 3:00 p.m. in front of the Ministry of Education, and Saturday at 3:00pm on Habib Bourguiba Avenue. Festivities continue late into the night with a performance by Saber Rebai at the Hotel Golden Tulip Carthage and “Interfact,” an electronic dance party hosted by student group FNO Tunisia at Hotel Barcelo, Carthage. For something a little different, drop by Le Plug in La Marsa for an evening with Setta Zeet, a local funk and jazz band.

    For the urbane crowd, Tahar Haddad Culture Club will be wrapping up its month-long Cafe Culture series with a poetry reading and open mic session in honor of Tunisian poet Aboukacem Chebbi.  He will be celebrating his 104th birthday posthumously.  In La Marsa, a photography exhibition will be running at Espace Mille Feuilles, while Efesto will host “X-Mimi: Evolution,” a visual arts show described as pop surrealist. In Belvedere, a new collection entitled “Forms” will be on display from March 5-18 at El Teatro Aire Libre.

      Ya rabi fadthoulhom kol sghar fi Tunis! I will doing my Harlem Shake over here in NC in support of you guys or else I’d be right there with you!!!!! Too many disparities in schools that go unaddressed everyday and the Ministry is overfocused on dancing?!?!?!?! I am so proud of the youth!

    1. it is so good that some tunisian children can make their own video of rythmic movements and that some of them can dress in costumes. I am so proud of our tunisian youth. Some of them shook there bodies so well. I am sure it will be very useful for them in their lives. And remember western music is linked to african music so it belongs to all. I hope some of them go on to get jobs as movers and shakers!

    2. wishing this shark attack buensiss will be resolved, as the sea is paradise and the people of egypt amazing. We love this place, its heaven here on earh. Our deepest sympathy to all the people who suffered, and died. RIP. We will still return and swim there.
