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.
