It was my first time experiencing the full thrust of Angolan-born multi-media and performance artist Nástio Mosquito. Despite what I might have read online, or the ICA’s “18 and over” warning, nothing quite prepared me for such an unconventional fusion of artistic disciplines – in one performance!… And I’ll admit, I left satisfied, if not wanting more!
I met filmmaker, producer and curator Dionne Walker who shared her thoughts of the event.

I attended to his performance in Lisbon last year. I assume that I liked much more the videos and CD I got. The performance happened in a tight room of an expensive and high class nightclub. I felt claustrophobic on that moment and not belonging to that place. Despite my claustrophobia, overal, I must say he is doing good job. I will watch the video you prepared for us. I have enjoyed the interviews on your YouTube channel. Congrats, Kai. Beijo.
Yes I think the venue makes a huge difference. This one at the ICA was very spacious…. and Nastio gave us free whiskey to ‘salute’! Muito obrigada for your comment!
Free drinks can also make the difference. 😀
