'Balady'' Film Presented in Berlin and Barcelona     

 In June, the audiovisual film resulting from the Balady project was presented. On 15 and 16th of June 2013, the final event of the Tandem/Shaml programme was held in Berlin (Germany). The event took place in the Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik (ZK/U) with the objective of disseminating the results of six partnerships between European and Arab cultural professionals. To conclude the Tandem/Shaml exchange program a range of performances, an exhibition, a concert and a round table on art in times of crisis were organized.

In Barcelona, the "Balady" film was presented on 27 June 2013 at the Francesca Bonnemaison / "La Bonne" Women's Cultural Centre' and  on 18th of July at Cadmus Barcelona Escuela de Árabe. After the presentation participants had the opportunity to share their impressions in a colloquium. 

"Balady" is a co-production by Donia Maher (Hassala, Cairo) and Emilie Vidal (Interarts, Barcelona) that invites viewers to reflect, through belly dance, on the complexity of cultures, on the relationships between men and women, on the control which society exercises on our bodies or on the transformative power of art in a historical moment of demand for greater freedom of the Arab people.
