The Journey Of The Meteor To Meet His Beloved
Performance, 2015, 25 minutes.
A text-based performance inspired by two stories; The first one is a book wrote in 1611 by Al-Hajarī, who has fled Spain for Morocco in 1599, following the persecutions of the Moriscos. The story plays a role in the context of a mixture of historical events I’m trying to find the blended culture of the Aljamiado manuscript [texts are manuscripts that use the Arabic script for transcribing European languages]. The second possible real story is about the Somali artist Haroun Kanshour and how he developed his performance through a tense relationship with the public and institutions.
