Tour | Tunis' Ancient Quarter - The Medina Live (virtual)


The ancient quarter of Tunis, the Medina, is exceptionally well preserved. It is considered to be the largest Medina in North Africa. The souks, originating in the 13th century, are covered with arches and teeming, bustling and overflowing with all sorts of merchandise. Join Mohamed as he takes you through the shops filled with fabrics of a thousand colours, perfumes and precious jewels. The contrast with the peaceful neighbouring alleys is striking. See the spectacular white walls and ironwork, vaulted passageways, domes with green tiles as well as the yellow doors framed with delicate patterns in carved stone.

Performance | Journey Around My Bedroom: Live Interactive Theater (virtual)


In Journey Around My Bedroom, Xavi is a little girl with a big imagination, stranded alone in her bedroom. When a mysterious visitor drops by looking for a missing part to fix his magical flying machine, they explore the hidden depths of her room and use the power of imagination to turn her isolation into an epic indoor voyage. Loosely inspired by a work of the same title by the 18th-century French writer Xavier de Maistre -- a peculiar travelogue conceived during six-weeks of house arrest - that transformed his confinement into a fresh perspective on his life. Written by Dianne Nora Lyrics by Dianne Nora & Hyeyoung Kim Songs and Music by Hyeyoung Kim Directed by Jaclyn Biskup Featuring Laura Kay, Starr Kirkland, Ashley Kristeen Vega

Performance | The Motown Project with a Broadway Performer (virtual)


Mezzo-soprano and a multi-dimensional artist Alicia Hall Moran (Broadway's Porgy and Bess) presents The Motown Project. Musical traditions yearning for each other across race, class and nation grace Alicia Hall Moran's meditation on the Motown songbook - a cinematic, movement-based aria fusing Sugar Pie Honey Bunch with Mozart while Marvin Gaye's lyrical pathos finds solemnity in Purcell. Featuring Thomas Flippin (guitar), Steven Herring (vocals), Barrington Lee (vocals), and Reggie Washington (bass) in collaboration with choreographer Amy Hall Garner, the motown project reimagines Motor City poetics in a study of desire and infatuation only soul and opera embodied by one chanteuse could endure.
