A Performance based on ‘P’ words (such as Piano, Pray, Pussy, Poetry, Poppers), where Ivo Dimchev invites willing members of the audience to write improvised Poetry on stage – in return for hard cash - as he transforms it into a live song at the Piano.

After the Performance the Public is invited to Play with the complex Pussy catalogue and construct their own Pussy and Print it on a Postcard.

★★★★★ - The physically present cash electrifies the room, and makes the experience hot, live, dangerous… Moving through poetry-writing to tap-dancing to kissing, we eventually find ourselves watching two volunteers strip naked and pretend to f*ck for five minutes.
An intriguing reflection on the relationship between audience and performer, the power of money to encourage uncharacteristic behaviour, the importance of maintaining moral integrity in the face of social pressure and the potential of art to enthuse even mundane activity with poetic meaning.
