The Soft Layer

This space is a continuation and restaging of 'The Soft Layer' a work started four years ago in the historic building of Dar Bairam Turki in Tunis, as part of the Dream City Biennale.
In Palermo local sandstone – tufo – and the debris of demolished palazzo’s, polished by the Mediterranean Sea, was used to rebuild the original scenography of the Soft Layer and mirror the building in Tunis, a few hundred kilometers across the sea.
As an essential part of the work, the texts created in Tunis were performed by Sicilian actors on the opening night of the program.
