With TUNISIA, Clyde Chabot revisits her family history of migration, to invite each to plunge into his own memory, to question migratory flow, the fear and the desire of other one, and our representations of the foreigner.
Her ancestors have left Sicily at the end of the XIXth century towards Tunisia then France. Today she questions the vanishing of two cultures : sicilian and tunisian in her own life. Her intefration in the french society is succesfull, but what has been lost ?
She realized interviews with her mother and her aunt who lived in Tunisia until the independence. A journey with her daughter at the beginning of 2015 to Tebourba, Tunisian village of her family near by Tunis, on the tracks of her ancestors, awakened thoughts, sensations, inspirations. Giving the material to TUNISIA, show mixing texts and images, "family archaeology" and fiction, tragedy and humor, reflection on the history and the colonial present of France, and Tunisia today. TUNISIA, spectacle mêlant textes et images, «archéologie familiale » et fiction, tragédie et humour, réflexion sur l’histoire et le présent colonial de la France et la Tunisie aujourd’hui.
