I construct a bar out of plywood. The middle of the bar is made of a block of ice. I serve cocktails called VIPs (Vodka, Ice and Peel), behind the giant icecube, dressed as a Bunny Girl. The ice slowly melts and I peel (crush) it for the cocktails. Little by little, the lower part of my body, covered only with transparent stocking, appears. The more iced cocktails served, the more quickly my body is unveiled to the public; an intriguing, cruel, ironic and comical game can be played. After the Micro-Event, the bar and my tools remain in place. A video of the performance projected on a TV screen replaces the iceblock. Are you a VIP? Do you like VIP cocktails?
