While quickly undressing, I pop the balloons in different ways, each time with a small explosition of bloody liquid which was inside - spraying the audience, sometimes from afar, for the most daring who came closer to interact, directly all over their bodies. Sometimes I ask for help with the popping - I can’t properly use a whip to pop one of the balloons, but a volunteer from the audience does, and we are all impressed. There are moments of intense silence, moment of laughter and also tension, as I decide what to do next - a large part of the performance is improvised.

I sing Falling in love again, over and over, while the musicians improvise and try to follow or proceed me. The audience can go in and out of the space. Each time a new group of people joins, I start the song from the top, while the scenery becomes messier and bloodier. I look each and everyone in the eye, while chewing on beetroot, spitting it out, having a watermelon shower, fucking fruit and sliding around, feeding the audience. We are all having a ball!

That is some good-looking audience!  Photo: Sophie Le Roux (https://www.sophielerouxdocu.com/)

I often stop and wonder why I appeal to men.

How many times I’ve blundered, in love and out again.

They offer me devotion, I like it I confess!

when i reflect emotion, there is no need to guess.

falling in love again

never wanted to

what am I to do

I can’t help it

Man flock around me like moths around a flame

and when their wings burn

I know I’m not to blame

Ein rätselhafter Schimmer,
Ein "je ne sais-pas-quoi"
Liegt in den Augen immer
Bei einer schönen Frau.
Doch wenn sich meine Augen
Bei einem vis-à-vis
Ganz tief in seine saugen
Was sprechen dann sie?:
Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß
Auf Liebe eingestellt,
Denn das ist meine Welt.
Und sonst gar nichts.
Das ist, was soll ich machen,
Meine Natur,
Ich kann halt lieben nur
Und sonst gar nichts.
