Monaco and Alexandria, they may be two emblematic global cities but their connections are little-known. The exhibition "Monaco-Alexandria, the Great Detour: World-capitals and Cosmopolitan Surrealism", open until 2 May 2022 at the New National Museum of Monaco, pays tribute to them through the works of 20th century artists. Morad Montazami has chosen this unique dialogue with artists from the second Egyptian school of surrealism and others who are more contemporary: Éric de Nemes, Mayo, Virginia Tentindo, Anna Boghiguian...

The play "Que Viennent les Barbares" (Let the Barbarians Come) took its inspiration from a work by the Greek poet Constantine Cavafy. Staged by Myriam Marzouki, it tries to grasp that which unites and separates us by drawing on the threads of world history to question what is happening to us. Myriam Marzouki offers us a foretaste of her new project in Tunisian Arabic (with French surtitles), "Nos Ailes Brûlent Aussi" (Our Wings are Burning As Well), based on a "non-heroic history" of the Tunisian revolution. Amongst those appearing on stage: Majd Mastoura, Kaïs Chouibi and Mounira Barbouch.

Imed, a young father, played by Mohamed Dahech, is faced with having to look after his 5-year-old son on his own, for the first time. An apparently ordinary moment in family life that awakens his dark side, linked to a heavy secret. In her short film "Le Bain" (The Bath), the film-director Anissa Daoud presents a feminine view of a slice of everyday life. One of her obsessions in film: exploring the hidden side of family love. After several selections and awards in European and African festivals, "Le Bain" will be competing officially at the short film festival Paris Courts Devant (10 to 16 January 2022).
