In this scathing parody of TV talk shows and celebrity worship, Blanca Li zaps her way through a series of performance sketches in which she appears as the hostess and invited guests, including an aging folk hippie, a pseudo-intellectual modern dancer, an over-achieving gymnast, a Brittany folk dancer, and many more. A hilarious tour de force by an ex-gymnast and flamenco dancer, trained at the Martha Graham and Alvin Ailey schools.

They didn’t zap …
Madonna «I love it that you can’t easily describe what she does. The shows are simple, but they have great power.»
Malcolm McLaren «Blanca is very intuitive, daring and innovative. She is on her way to becoming one of the greats.»
