Rafram Chaddad

Performance

In Aleppo and Beirut there was an old habit in roads café’s, to serve to the people who come from far away, a piece of lettuce and a glass of water.

I took this custom and transferred it to the old city of Jerusalem, for the end of the Ramadan fast.

I took a local wagon, placed inside lettuce leaves, glasses of water and started to give away the lettuce and the water. Speaking Arabic, but not local one, I was the center of attention. People started to gather around me, listening to stories from the Arab world.

Thanks to Ella Almagor and Muslala.

The performance was running for 3 days.
