Happy Labor Day, Tunis!  Enjoy your break from work by reviewing some of the cultural events taking place in the capital this week. The Just Standing Dance Festival will begin today in various locations around Tunis. Be sure to drop by the Municipal Theater on May 4th for a battle featuring different styles of dance, and catch a film screening at 4th Art on May 5.

Two great theatrical shows, Monstranum'S and Lofti Abdelli's stand-up comedy act Made in Tunisia are making renewed appearances at Al Hamra and the Coliseum, respectively. Zero Point, a new political commentary, is opening tomorrow at El Teatro in Belvedere.

For those interested in visual arts, a wide variety of styles can be found in local galleries. Look for futuristic surrealism in Ennaser II, a review of orientalist art in the Medina, and a collaborative presentation of Iraqi and Tunisian artists in Sukra.
