This paper presents a theoretical framework, which conceptualizes Muslims women everyday life with particular reference to the body and the intimate sphere. The paper has two main objectives. The first, more relevant, is to clarify the concept of performance, which is described as a narrative form that primarily calls into question the body and which appears as a mimetic rather than conceptual reflexivity (Lash, 1993). The second objective, of methodological nature, implies the presentation of a tool for analyzing the documental material collected during the research and its potential in interpreting the women narratives. Our general aim is to question the concept of representation of the experience and to understand how the actors “perform” their social experience.
