Sur la Planche

Tuesday 20 May 2014 18:00-19:45

In Tangier, four young women spend their days working in a shrimp-packaging factory and their nights dancing, partying… living. From dust till dawn, the tireless Badia leads the group through the city at a frenzied rhythm.

"[...] a form of black magic that should appeal to audiences everywhere, with bags of energy, a team of explosive young actresses and a poetic hold-up." The Guardian
