A secret test of character for the audience, a test of endurance for the artist.
“Bubblegum Bubblegum in a Dish/How Many Pieces Do You Wish?” was a little song we used to pick teams when I was in elementary school. I use it as the basis for the performance, to incite the audience to choose how much punishment they are willing to give someone when given the opportunity.
Here’s how the performance went down during Meeting Point: Veiled Collapse and Expansion, on the opening night of Grace Space’s Fall 2013 season. Photos by David Crespo.
