Tender Blood

Performance with Sheree Rose.

Sheree and I approach each other slowly across the ring. Our bodies meet peacefully, then push and struggle. We come to sit facing one another- holding hands. We cut one another foreheads with a scalpel. I apply Sheree’s blood to her lips and she kisses the blood onto my face- I do the same to her. She cuts our design into my arm and I do the same to her. We rub our wounds together and embrace.

Throughout the performance audio of Sheree reading ‘Why not’ and myself reading "Prison Prose' is played.
