Performance Art in Tokyo

A high voltage performance on the streets of Shinjuku, Tokyo.

I am a bit mesmerized by this at the moment! Experimental or artistic performance on the streets of Tokyo, while far more common during the warmer months is not a major money or attention spinning event for artists like it may be in some countries.

I remember last summer we watched a street performer in Barcelona do his thing and then coincidentally followed him into a local cafe after he had finished his performance. For a guy who had spray painted his whole body green and stood motionless for much of his act he raked in a fair packet of euro! Impressive.

Although we are not yet hooptastic enough to take our spiraling to the streets it could make for an tingling experience and confidence builder.

If you ever want to get a group together, I'm up for it. I don't know what amazing things your teacher has been teaching you, so you're probably far, far better than I am, but I love hula hooping and if you want to do it, I'll do it with you any time and I know some friends who might try it, too.

I was mesmerized too!

Can you wait until December for your Hula on the street. I will come and watch! ;-)

Ha ha I wondered if it was drug induced too! Isn't that sad...I am sure she just has an energetic soul that needs to release the power!

Oh we will have to hoop together to keep warm in December!!

When are you coming????
