The following is from the book‭: ‬“Adina Bar-On‭, ‬Performance Artist”‭ ‬by Idit Porat and‭ ‬Adina Bar-On‭, Published by Kibbutz Hameuchad Ltd‭., ‬Herzlyia Museum of Art‭, 2001

 

Place‭: ‬
The lawn in front of the old Tel-Hai wall‭; ‬a summer day‭, ‬five o’clock in the afternoon‭.‬

Duration‭: ‬
About half an hour‭.‬

Dress‭: ‬
Satin sport shorts‭, ‬with a blue stripe at the side‭. ‬A T-shir‭t. ‬The face is covered with white make-up‭. ‬There are blue circles around the eyes and the eyelids are painted brown‭. ‬The blue circles spread sidewards in a strip of light blue that crosses the cheek bones to the ears‭, ‬which are also painted blue‭. ‬The lips are made smaller with the aid of red paint‭.‬

Description‭:
‬Two parallel strings extend from the wall to the center of the lawn‭, ‬creating paths along which Adina moves‭.‬

 

The audience gathers in the performance area‭, ‬some standing‭, ‬some seated‭. ‬Adina arrives at the center of the lawn and stands facing the audience‭, ‬which is about eight or ten meters away from her‭.‬

 

Adina begins creating a wave-like movement of her torso‭, ‬with her breathing guiding her movements‭; ‬Her inhalations alternately expand her abdomen and her chest‭. ‬When Adina contracts her abdomen‭, ‬the ascends to her chest and expands the area‭; ‬when she blocks the area of the chest to the air,she creates a concave form‭, ‬and so on‭. ‬The breathing is discernible in the abdomen and the chest as a large wave-like movement that directs the viewer`s attention to the front of her body‭.‬

 

Adina begins moving the area of the neck‭, ‬the back of the neck‭, ‬and the head‭: ‬the back of the neck is thrust forward as in a motion of peeping into some place‭. ‬Her movements are short‭, ‬abrupt and angular‭.‬

 

Adina starts moving in the space‭, ‬in relation to the audience‭, ‬in several ways‭:
‬1‭. ‬Erect‭, ‬measured walking‭, ‬in a straight line‭, ‬with her arms extended forward‭. ‬In this way she walks through the audience and divides it into two separate blocks‭.
‬2‭. ‬Running in circles around the audience‭, ‬which makes the viewers group together and form a closed‭, ‬coherent block‭.‬
3‭. ‬Adina stands inside one group of people, while the second group looks at the first‭. ‬She creates a very distant‭, ‬open‭, ‬multi-directional gaze‭, ‬which burst outward out of the density‭, ‬to the open space‭.
‬4‭.‬ Adina stands in the center‭, ‬between the two groups of people‭. ‬She constitutes a kind of compositional point‭, ‬with her body bent‭ ‬downward‭, ‬close to the surface of the lawn‭. ‬From this position she begins to sing a lilting melody‭.‬
5. ‬Adina leads the audience behind her and creates a long procession‭. ‬Her gait is slow and ceremonial‭.‬

 

Adina concludes the performance with the position with which she began‭.‬
