My research focuses on modern and contemporary Francophone Literature and Theater. I am particularly interested in the modern transformations of the theater space implied by historical turning points such as the Jasmine Revolution or the world’s current pandemic. Through written and performed inquiries, I aim to demonstrate the ways in which performance offers a powerful act of creation and resistance. My work focuses on the social and political implications of post-revolutionary theater in Tunisia as North African plays offer an extensive but yet unexplored body of work in terms of affect, psychology, and sociology.
