The 60s and 70s were the heyday of popular Arab cinema. Singing, dancing and smoking divas filled the screens and enchanted audiences of all ages. Hugely popular in films and on TV, these demi-gods allured with fake blondeness, cardboard scenery, and abundant sensuality. With When The Arabs Used to Dance, Tunisian choreographer Radhouane El Meddeb harks back in a bittersweet production to this glory age. Now performed by four men, and pared down to existential intensity, the gyrating hips, exposed navels and compulsive flirting celebrate as much as they provoke - a dance on a volcano and on the precipice of the chaos to come.
