The performance starts where four corners of my dress can be tied to some fixed elements – metal or cement barriers, rails, trees etc. I am standing in a white dress tied to four places, with a watermelon between my legs, hands tied behind my back. I free myself, tearing the dress from the points of attachment, and walk forward rolling the watermelon with my feet. Upon reaching the end of the platform, I push the watermelon over the edge and it bursts open on the ground. I get to the watermelon and start to greedily devour it. This creates red stains on the white dress.
