Sarketab interactive performance is based on the tradition of fortunetelling by using a book. The book used for this purpose is a handmade manuscript, somehow could be regarded as “book art” in terms of physical appearance and artistic idea. Each page of the book contains an envelope decorated with abstract forms inspired by calligraphy. Similar to such envelops are the cards with numbers on, having been distributed earlier among the audience. Knowing their own intention, they have to pick up one of the card randomly. Then the audiences say their page numbers by announcing the ones written on the back of each card. They come to the book to take their omen from inside the envelopes. Once the text of fortunetelling is read, they listen to the fortuneteller (performer, poet)’s interpretation supposed to be the response to their intentions. Each text is actually a piece selected from the significant works of Persian or world history of literature the poet has written some interpretations on which. The poet intends to demonstrate that if a fragment of Márquez’s story, a part of Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Nietzsche, a tale from Sa’di’s Golestan, a poem by Mallarmé, a section from the Tarikh-i Bayhaqi history book, a part of Kar-e Shabpā poem collection by Nima Yooshij, or a quartet (robai) by Omar Khayyam are being recited in a condition similar to that of fortunetelling, they will find the same intended effect and meaning in the mind as those of a ghazal by Hafez or some quranic verses will do. The texts herein are relevant to the pictures on the envelopes and the poet (performer, fortuneteller) is actually interpreting such a relation.
