It reminds on a paper I wrote once.
“ Mini girls in Maxi dresses.”
It was in the time of the 80 eighties when you saw this images coming up. Small girls wearing the same outfit as their mother, walking next to her with her doll. It is very cute and the most people are very touched by this image. When we are young we learn the most from copying. It took years to uncopy myself!
Wednesday we have our presentation here in the Babel Theater. Our house here is just around the counter from Haram street. It is a very big flat with a lot of paintings in it. This morning Maze and me took advantage of not having internet connection in the house. We just look at the ceiling and made our own stories. It is a nice experience and after our disappointment from not having internet connection and we are almost happy with it now.
In the mean time we are going on exploring Beirut.
Tomorrow Maze de Boer and me will leave for Beirut. We will be the guest of Helen Karam visual artist and Director of the Babel Theatre. We met each other last year during the Prince Claus awards. Later we had a lunch in my house. On the picture you see Samuel Shimon ( writer and editor from Banipal Magazine) with green pot ladle and Jawad Al-Alssadi art director and founder of the Babel Theater and Nicoline Nagtzaam scriptwriter (hand up) and Helen Karam. Maze and me will give an introduction to our work and explore the possibilities of making new work.
