Un-Marry Us

 

Un-Marry Us is an invitation to a rooftop wedding party on Nahj El-Bacha Street in Tunis. A research-based site-specific performance exploring the old medina as a refuge for marginalised communities and those who are fighting for personal freedom and collective dignity. Mixing food, music, oral histories, and urban research, we turn the city into a scenography and its rooftops into stages. Un-Marry Us was made in collaboration with Beity shelter for women and Damj organisation for LGBTQI+ rights.
