Live performance

The Mosquitos always woke me at 4:00 O’clock in the morning, when I lived on the mountain in Trinidad. I had to get up, in order to do something against the itching. The Mosquitos gave me the inspiration to do this performance.

I stand on the street, flapping my legs and scratching the Mosquito bites. I am “dancing” all around the place. As a consequence, two men tried to bring me to their car in order to drive me to the hospital, because they believed that I had a strong allergy… Most of the public helped me while I was flapping and scratching myself.
