For the sake of the mimesis of the daily political existence, we are interested in the concept of “thinking actor/actress” beyond the actor/actress who creates and performs. What kind of an action would the reality, which is formed between the audience and the actor/actress, generate? And how can this action be materially transferred into the political arena? We laid the great shift in the Middle East known as “The Arab Spring” on the table. In Arabic, “İçtima-i Hakiki” is used for the stars which line up with equal distance between each and a direct translation would mean “True Assembly”. Our assembly will be realized altogether with the intellectuals, journalists, artists from different disciplines and participants who have come to watch us on the “social media” network and a preferred venue with the recordings of the body language and video-art, of the multimedia and of the sounds as action will have the first priority.
