Performance #00

Performance #00 took place in Spazio Nour and was enabled by Mahmoud Saleh Mohammadi with Francesca Lolli. The performers, who wear formal dresses, to highlight the importance of the gestures, began writing on a wall two texts belonging to their different cultures: Francesca transcribed "Preghiera Semplice" by San Francesco D'Assisi and Mahmoud a poetical prayer by Saadi, an Iranian poet. Once they're finished, the wall was whitewashed and the writings disappeared. The performance can be considered a ritual action which enshrines the collaboration between the artists and the hosting venue.
