Opening Performance: Dadao Live Art Festival: Contains nudity

I’m glad I kept it simple. By the time I showed my solo, some three hours and a variety of live art explosions, weltings, wrappings, climbings, creamings and drenchings after the beginning, only something simple and direct could be visible. I was very happy to have been able to be an occasion of silence and concentration in that busy environment.

My only prop was the red colour on my hands and feet – a vestige of the Cosán Dearg Chinese food dye which I’d expected to find here but which isn’t widely available at all. Instead I used acrylic paint from the fancy art shop in this increasingly commercial 798 Art district.
