Some things are just too strange to be believed. Still, when you see them with your own eyes, you know they are true, somehow.
Take this scene for example. A man is being walked through the streets of London on a dog lead.
The smartly-dressed man in a trousers, shirt and shoes is seen being pulled along with a pink lead around his neck. In front of him is a woman who is holding the lead, whilst drinking a cup of coffee, like it is the most normal thing in the world.
Now the first thing I thought, like most of you, is ‘what the hell is going on here?’ We all know the London dominatrix escorts get up to all kind of crazy stuff during an appointment. Could this be bizarre roleplay? Or could this be a guy who has got caught cheating, and his paying his penance?
Well, after investigation. It seems that the whole thing was a project by a theatre project, focusing on crowd reactions. The man being led on the leash is the director.
Reaction ranged from amusement, to questioning wether the guys human rights had been infringed?
So, it was all a piece of performance art! That doesn’t stop the whole thing being rather strange. But I do agree theatre should not just be about appearing an a manufactured stage.
Its a fun, though definitely crazy world we live in!
