..., This performance is a real casting arranged among the spectators and the artist to fulfill several roles, in order to stage a short theatrical representation of a love quadrangle. In this scenario Ghayatt covers the double-role of director and actor.

The performance aims at testing the participants, and their inclinations towards aggressive behaviors under the influence of emotions associated with the acted scene. The Casting is a more subtle investigation of the theme human violence, a topic widely inspected by Ghayatt in his latest works in theatre. In the course of the action the spectators/actors are pushed to their limits, forced to experiment with their own social attitude, to deal with their most hidden mental barriers and prejudices. Covered by the role of the actor the spectator is free to disclose his/her secret nature, to be “more real than reality”, as the artist states.
