The performance Museum Floor Travel is based on the desire to make, ad random and in a constant flow, a series of direct, small and playful performances that all last one minute. A gambling structure, with an infinite number of possible performances, for a group of about twenty participants. The participants, to be recognized via the yellow armband, work in pairs and are by turn performer and assistant. The performance starts when each performer takes four cards. Each card represents one element out of the categories: time, object, sound and space. With, to the cards matching, objects on a yellow tray the two walk to the marked spaces in the museum and present their performance. Again after each performance every couple takes four new cards. In this way an on going series of performances on different spots, and moments take place and in the light of torches.
