I`m currently preparing an evening dedicated to the creativity of the Arab revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, Libya, Yemen. I`m trying to pull together a program of cartoons, songs,parodies, short film, showing how brave the Arabs have been not only in the streets, but even in art. There is an incredible amount of creativity coming out from the Arab revolutions and I`d like to pay tribute to this. The program will be built around a screening of user-generated videos and live performances of music, dance and theater put together by Arabs resident in Italy.
“Creative Revolutions!” will be hosted in the beautiful space of Valle Occupato which is the most significant #occupy movement in Italy.
If you have any suggestions of creative videos coming out from the Arab Springs please do not hesitate to contact me. The show will be repeated in Paris early next year and hopefully in other places. I`d love to pay tribute as much as I can to this brave creative youth.
Here below some of the examples I`m planning to show on the 27th Nov:
Dans la tete d`Aziza.. by Astrubaal, Nawaat (Tunisia)
Asmaa Mahfouz, a video message (a truly creative girl who contributed with the power of her words to call upon the Egyptians to hit the streets on Jan25)
Syrian Rap from the strong heroes of Moscow (Syria)
Rulers street fighters from the incredibly creative team of Kharabeesh.com (Jordan)
