an old act

 I've seen performance art in US subway trains a few times.    A couple of years ago a group of black older teens did what seemed to be a fusion of acrobatics and hip hop moves in the relative narrow confines of the train, one at a time.  They started by saying, "Hey, listen up everyone" with an authoritative and loud voice and most  people got quite startled.  They said they were performers and just wanted to raise some money so they can take their act to other cities.  They were quite good.

Wonderful idea in the unlikeliest of places. How refreshing and original.


And, luck favors a prepared mind.

The girl in the rainbow outfit is gorgeous and presentable! She looks like a movie star! I also like the "Coldplay" music!

I don't like the badges and attachment on her outfit! Not sure what type of art it is?
