1001 nights cast is a durational performance by Australian artist, Barbara Campbell. Each night at sunset, Barbara performs a short text-based work as a live webcast. The performance texts are written for her each day in response to a prompt she draws from the morning’s newspaper reports on the Middle East. The project will run for 1001 nights, ending on March 17 2008.
Based on real events, the performance centres on a notebook in which Mroué has collected everything published in local papers about the disappearance of a government employee in Beirut.
