Created live for a talent show on Bigo. Bigo is a live streaming app that I stream from almost everyday as an official host.
Night one of the talent show I presented a performance that showcased hooping and painting. I created a backdrop using yellow paper and put the Uruz rune symbol on it with adhesive vinyl. I made it to the next round but afterwards I felt really embarrassed. I was alone, it got dark and I spiraled into a hole. It lasted through into the next day and I was questioning even going back for the 2nd night. This is the live performance of that night. But I couldn’t not do it so I reached out to friends for support. I’m so appreciative of the 2 friends that came to help me that night. It was our silliness together that inspired the idea of throwing food covered in paint. We experimented with noodles, eggs and rice. The rice was a huge mess and didn’t work well with the paint. But the noodles and eggs were incredible!!
I would say the audience and the judges were mostly confused about what I presented. Why was I throwing food at the wall and calling it art? Why didn’t I present one of my many talents, like hooping or yoga or fire dancing? (Something the judges would understand and like) I guess calling upon the powerful forces of Uruz, I didn’t realize what I was getting myself into.
I showed up to the talent show not to showcase my talent but to unleash a powerful energy that would shape the months following. :)
