Episode #3

[The Journey of the Meteor to Meet his Beloved]



A text-based performance inspired from two stories; The first one is a book wrote in 1611 by Al-Hajar, who has fled Spain for Morocco in 1599, following the persecutions of the Moriscos. The story plays a role in the context of mixture historical culture 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 public and institutions.
