Exhausted, Artist Needs to be Carried

Artist Carried Off

After what sources say was quite a long Sunday night at John Snow House, artist Allison Cummings started hopping into the arms of both friends and complete strangers, apparently expecting to be carried. One might assume that she was either exhausted from her long performance, or full and sleepy from a big meal of rice paper and chili sauce.

Although Cummings is small and light, inevitably she would become too heavy and need to be let down. After lying on the floor briefly, Cummings would get back up and just stand there, quietly waiting to be fed and picked up again. This continued in the lobby of the Epcor Centre for about four hours on Monday afternoon.
