An Evening with Syhem Belkhodja

Tunisian-French dancer, choreographer, curator, and activist Syhem Belkhodja uses movement to empower youth and young adults, combat violence and extremism, and effect social change in Tunisia. This evening offers a deeper look into her artistic, social, and educational work.
Through a moderated discussion with the artist, a question and answer session, and a live presentation involving her dancers from Tunisia, Belkhodja will illuminate her process as both a choreographer and the director of two pioneering schools, the School of Arts and Cinema and the Mediterranean Centre for Contemporary Dance.
