"Accompanied by the sort of cheesy easy-listening synth that might be the soundtrack to a terrible yet surreal dining experience, Parton snuggles down on the floor in the corner of a room with many tubs and packs of chicken and potato and gravy and a desk lamp. Using her material like it were clay she carefully, lovingly piles chicken into a sculpted mound, employing potato and gravy as glue (dabbing at it on a plastic tub top as if this were her painter’s palette)."
Wearing a pink leotard, the artist dances to Guns N' Roses.
Kneeling and swaying to the music, the artist appears dressed as a mermaid in a clam-shell paddling pool.
The artist, in a long red dress, shyly sings Time after Time.
The artist, crutches by her side, dances partner-less amongst the otherwise empty seats in a corner of a school disco.
