Swathed in mosquito netting and illuminated by two bug zappers, Sasamoto expounds on happy coincidences, lying friends, and her enmity for mosquitoes. Over the course of the free-form performance, she attempts to briefly become the insect, hanging off the pipes and blowing water from a straw into the suspended death lights, cursing her failure to get singed.
