Man anam ke rostam bovad pahlavan
In this work, Ali Moini and his life-size puppet interact through a block and tackle. Through karabiners and pulleys connected by a complex system of ropes, the performer and the metal puppet form an interdependent triad. Thus each dance movement finds its echo in a dismantled and chaotic version in the movements of the metal, initially fleshless puppet. Here the mechanism does not just function as a translator but also as the manipulator of the life between the artist and his double, which causes even the meaning of the respective roles to fade. The efficiency of the development of the actors on the stage can vary to the extent that their identities and classifications – between object and subject, actor and observer, follower and leader, authenticity and unreliability – are lost.
