Silent performance at Strøget in Copenhagen. It was most thought-provoking during the 10 minutes of heavy showers. Urban performances are not always colorful and entertaining. This urban performances increase social awareness - it engaged the social to reflect upon the seemingly lack of performance. In many ways this is a well put commentary to the many visually and performative urban spaces in western cities at the moment. Obviously the piece draws from John Cage’s 4.33. Whereas the music performance of Cage could be interpreted as questioning the institution of the concert, this performance rather engaged in issues regarding public space, our consumption of experiences and events (taking place in public) and the general need for something to happen.
