Are you ready for something totally bizarre, psychadelic... yet oddly uplifting? Get ready for the strange world of Snuff Puppets, a performance art group who work with humanoid puppetry.
Check out the video or skip for the breakdown...
As people mill around, there's a giant, freaky human thing
It has... openings...
Suddenly, the miracle of childbirth!
They get independent so fast...
Nom, nom, nom
Bodily organs begin escaping their bounds
... and coming to life to dance with the children!
Pretty strange, I know, but the Snuff Puppets gang have their hearts in the right place (that is, hopping all over the sidewalk). Artistic director Andy Freer commented on the viral success this performance received, saying:
I’m so excited by the fact this video has reached millions of people all over the world, albeit a 2 minute clip from a 2 hour LIVE performance art piece. A piece that explores the one thing that all humans have in common: the human body.
Naively simple concept maybe; beautiful, shocking, incredibly complex is what defines the human body and our relationship with it. Children whose parents and guardians allowed them to view this work expressed their joy, fear and innocent curiosity.
Poos and wees, penises and vaginas, bums and boobs, we deal with these human body parts and functions multiple times daily and children in particular think it’s hilarious. If you’re wondering, any expression of sexuality is most definitely kept for an adults only audience.
Free the human body and maybe one day everybody can be free.
