Squish is from the American Cockroach video series. I raised the cockroaches that form the cast.
“Comic relief comes from “Squish,” a veritable roach modern dance set to a soundtrack of beating drums. Here Chalmers capitalizes on the insects’ beauty and repulsiveness. There’s a perverse charm to this performance, but you sure wouldn’t want to see it in your kitchen. The screen goes dark at the end and one hears a crunching sound, as if a big foot came down instead of a stage curtain.”
