Light Touch

There are four of us presenting our work. 
I show a laborious sequence of images first. 
A woman paints everything royal blue including a local factory chimney. Its big and showy stuff but touches no-one.  
But it is the last that is the simplest and has most impact. A man directs us to concentrate on our breath and all of a sudden I am transformed and have stopped worrying about the poverty of my own contribution.

Lizard Man

I glimpse a man with the head of a lizard walking past an empty room.

Underground Performance Artist

At the end of the show a performance artist clambers down from the stage into a hole below the trapdoor. There he slips into a coffin his actions unseen. The audience is entralled but even more so when it is revealed that his sister has been patiently lying in a neighbouring chamber throughout the whole evening, checking that everything is in place.
Although the performance has officially finished the cast from Coronation Street troop in to watch.
