Bar Farouk at Al Metro Madina

Metro al Madina presents "Bar Farouk". Bar Farouk revives the artistic scene of Beirut from the 30s to the 70s, from popular theatre to cabaret music and dance, through the works of icons who have marked the art scene before the civil war, such as Chouchou, Sabah, Ferial Karim and the poet Omar El Zeenni, amongst many. 14 Musicians, singers, actors and dancers bring you back to this golden era where Beirut was at the avant-garde of the cultural and artistic life in the Middle-East

Ouled Jalleba, a dancing performance by Rochdi Belgasmi

"OUELD JALLEBA" is a known figure in the world of popular arts in Tunisia but, paradoxically, little known among Tunisians. He appeared in the 20s in Bab Souika in Tunis and worked in the singing café "Sallit Dziri". He was much demanded by the public of the medina, which ignored in most time his sexual identity. He, and other transvestites’ dancers were no longer capable of practicing their art once women had the right to dance in public café, with the resistance and women’s liberation movement in Tunisia. The project is a dance in tribute to figures of folk dancers, less known or which have fallen into oblivion or have been discarded and rejected by the society, such as Oueld Jaleba.
