Performing Tangier 2013

Once again, Tangier's International Center for Performance Studies brings off a well-attended conference, replete with book presentations, concerts, debates, and of course, performances.

TALIM was pleased to serve as the venue for the kick-off evening, which included our friend Dr. Carol Malt presenting her latest book, Moroccan Museums as Agents for Women's Empowerment: A Study of Museums in Thirty-Two Cities (2013, Mellen Press).

Every year, Dr. Khalid Amine of Abdelmalek Essaadi University, Founder and President of ICPS, pulls together this international gathering of theatre and performance experts – academics, writers, and performers – in a number of venues.  We are honored to be partners with ICPS.

Last year's ICPS-TALIM collaboration resulted in a great one-woman show dramatizing true WW II Legation stories, which we are pleased to say has had a US reprise at the University of Alabama.

  1. Congratulations on Performing Tangier 2013! The University of Alabama audience fell in love with the Legation through the performance I did in April. Everyone should see that beautiful and unique treasure!
