On the Fes Festival Fringe Today...

Opening of Le Muzoo: a traveling museum conceived by Sinéangulo at Palais Mokri (not "Dar Mokri").  Sinéangulo's adventure is composed of fresco, tent, clothes, collected stones…

         In the middle of the desert,
        I laid myself on the ground of sand.
        I was small - much smaller than I imagined myself could ever be.

        I thought, my footprint would make absolutely no difference, let alone my   teardrop.
        Just at that moment, a drop of tear touched the sand.
        It quickly became solid.
        Carefully, I touched it. It was still solid.
        I put it on my hand.
        When the tear vaporized, the sand remained.
        It was much more than I imagined a drop of tear could ever weigh.
