Doing performances is the only way I can get my own life back, which has me by the balls.
Through Action Art, those outside see how you lay yourself bare, how you stumble, slip and slide, how you contagiously segregate adrenaline, fear, arousal, and your palpitations boil over into your audacity against a world that charges a high price for daring to be. But the art of performance protects me, it�s my ally and punishes the meddling of censorship and reprimand or attempted castration by turning them all into part of the show.
If anyone dares to indulge in such actions during a performance, they�ll be devoured and end up being part of the furniture, thus enriching the transgression. Performance swallows everything; it�s voracious, precise, skilful, categorical in the struggle against idiocy.
What shouldn�t be done, for the Congelada to do it? Those are the starting points of my Action Art.
