Ok, so I'm gonna get real real. I had ZERO idea what I was going to do in the fountain. I didn't have my outfit or music settled on until right before I went on (I was going to wear a bodysuit & do something dancey but it had an awkward zipper in the oddest place & I couldn't get over it). I have done a mermaid piece many times where two people unwrap me & work with the fabric, but the song was inappropriate for a family show & I didn't have any dancers. I'd been way too busy to dream up or work on another performance (7 in a week had me like 🙃) so I just went out ready to wing it. I just unwrapped myself & played in the dang fountain with fabric. It ended up being my favorite time of the weekend. It felt like magic. After so much stress it felt amazing to just be in the space & in the moment.
A volunteer from the crowd & I managed to get the fountain to lift the fabric a little!! This is the only bit of video I've seen, thanks @hurricane_kkaattrriinnaa 💖💖💖 You're awesome!!!
