Description: 
This action is a mixture of visual arts and opera. It unfolds in three acts entitled: First Circle, Second Circle and Third Circle. Noël Dolla appears in the center of an arcade, framed by one of his paintings, his body dressed in the colors of the four races (red, yellow, black and white). He walks down into the arena to perform a series of actions during which he uses various materials and objects to paint, mostly on the ground, such as colored salt, chalk, a paintbrush or a barbell. These pictorial actions break away from the traditional frontal position of the artist facing his painting.
