CHOCOLATE HOOP

The performer licked the hands of the sculptor. The chocolate melts on the performer’s skin with every twirl of the hoop, with every twirl of the hoop, with every twirl of the hoop, with every twirl of the hoop, with every twirl of the hoop.

A visual artist sculpted a hoop with chocolate and plastic. The equipment made out of chocolate melts away along with the movement of the performer. The air is hot, the chocolate smells sweet. The melted chocolate transplants the equipment onto the performer’s skin.

The sculptor sculpts. The equipments come and go. It’s the twirl of the hoop. The hoop smears the performer’s body in chocolate. The equipment melts and breaks, it cannot be used as it was meant to.
