La performance interactive Pull, Sort, Hang, Dry and Crush implique des cultures alimentaires et leur replantation. Transportés sur des milliers de kilomètres, les plants sauvages de thym feront l’objet d’un nouvel usage grâce au processus de séchage, de broyage et d’entreposage. L’artiste parlera de l’origine des plantes tout en recréant la recette du Zataar d’après la technique de sa mère.
Du thé sera servi.

Pull, Sort, Hang, Dry and Crush is an interactive performance involving food crops and their re-plantation. Transported thousands of kilometres, the wild thyme plants will be re-purposed through the processes of drying, crushing and storing. AlZeri will speak of the plants origin and in so doing he will re-create the Zaatar mix using his mother’s technique. Tea will be served.
