Never Going to be Carmen Miranda


Hollywood versus real life. Sticky. Juicy. Messy.

I nailed a juicer to the wall and leant against it in my fruit headdress. I’d just broken up with my Brazilian boyfriend in glorious Technicolor. Juice rolled down my face. It was stupid and spectacular, as was my introduction to the performance in French (I don’t speak French).

As part of Videoformes, a performance and film exchange between University of Salford and Clermont-Ferrand, France with support from the AA2A residency programme.
