In October 2009, Marta Pisco went to Beirut to do her street performance. A Western Woman and then a Green Monster walked the streets of different areas in Beirut. Pisco’s main focus in this project is underlining that what we people (and monsters!) have in common is far more and far more important than what divides us.
