Making of The Arrest- hands up, hand out.
Put your hand in the air and jump and jump / Dig it up and down / watch the plates shake / silicone bit head snake / Pump to the right and pump to the left / Throw the coin / five gourde toss / Departing birds / Hiding to bite, chew and swallow / Bag men eating, gas men laughing / Converse and ketch ass stepping / Laocoon and crapaud dance / watching the coin drop / Terrazzo and camouflage balls / Looking like a red dot but it’s not. - See more at: http://arcthemagazine.com/arc/2013/11/the-arrest-hands-up-hand-out-opening-reception-at-the-betsy-south-beach-hotel/#sthash.bkutizbw.dpuf
