Part of Take Me Somewhere
A performance based on ‘P’ words (such as Piano, Pray, Pussy, Poetry, Poppers), where Ivo Dimchev invites willing members of the audience to write improvised poetry on stage – in return for hard cash - as he transforms it into a live song at the piano.
The People will be given other different opportunities to Participate in the P Project for which they are going to be Paid quite well. After the Performance the Public is invited to Play with the complex Pussy catalogue and construct their own Pussy and Print it on a Postcard.
★★★★★ “The physically present cash electrifies the room, and makes the experience hot, live, dangerous… Moving through poetry-writing to tap-dancing to kissing, we eventually find ourselves watching two volunteers strip naked and pretend to f*ck for five minutes, for a reward of £250 each. ” (The Stage)
"An intriguing reflection on the relationship between audience and performer, the power of money to encourage uncharacteristic behaviour ... and the potential of art to enthuse even mundane activity with poetic meaning." (The List)
