Private Project

Scrivere con i piedi | TransnatioRal Performance | Studio

Scrivere con i piedi (Writing with your feet) means weaving a relationship with one's oral history, made up of tales, stories and legends that are handed down in the family and in one's community. These are the stories that are made sitting in your living room but that speak of e/im-migrations. Writing with your feet by tracing the lines of a story that you tell at the exact moment you cross it, remembering that not everyone has the ability to transport ("with a critical look") our stories into written words, therefore:
"Scrivere con i piedi is an obsession I had as a young girl, my parents didn't speak Italian well, they can't read and write, and I went to a hotel school that made me think I wasn't able to write with my hands...". Wissal Houbabi
