2017: Human Friends the play

Click Here to Add a Title

Human friends is a play produced by El Teatro Tunis starring Moncef Zahrouni & Amina Ben Doua. The artwork is based on a play by the science/philosophy fiction writer Bernard Werber.


The French author is known for his intriguing writing technique that consists of taking a step back and observing the human species through different angles/perspectives. 

Synopsis

Kidnapped then confined into a hostile cage, Raouf a misanthropic biologist and Samira a cabaret singer face three challenges: decipher the abductor identity, cohabitate with very limited resources and learn to love each other. Ultimately, comes the existential question: does humanity deserve a second chance?

2016: (M)ass Terrorism- Space of Nothingness

First single by the duo Myllenium Capella co-founded by Saria & Moncef Zahrouni back in 2015. 

The song's satirical lyrics criticising the anal tests gay people in Tunisia are still subjected to in order prove their homosexuality was illustrated by a sarcastic video clip that the duo devised as a lampoon. 

The video depicts the story of an imaginary country that in order to control its citizens rectums, introduces through its interior ministry a small chip to be anally transplanted to keep an eye on all possible use case scenarios of every resident's rectum.

Space of Nothingness- (M)ass Terrorism came as a response to the Tunisian government scandalous indifference towards human rights since the “Jasmin Revolution” has taken place. Though Tunisia won the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize, LGBT+ people are still persecuted, free thinkers jailed, free lovers harassed, day dreamers oppressed, weed smokers severely sentenced and terrorists justified. The song goes farther to draw a livid painting of a world made of unsurpassable absurdities confining the human existence to an absolute nonsense.
