Buffoonery Flash Mob reactions…

On April 1st, 2011 downtown Vancouver, a big black limo stopped outside the Vancouver Library. Out came some very mysterious characters called bouffons. They roamed curiously, and discovered the area, and the humans present.

They were quiet for awhile, and then..

…they danced. And, then they invited the humans to dance, too.

On that drizzly day in Vancouver there was a big bright spot of colour, and some very big grins. My goal as the leader of this wacky project was to bring unexpected, un-distracted joy to anyone near. Life can be challenging and sometimes we just need to let go, be our bouffons, and dance.

The result ended up on a wonderful video by Michael Julian Berz, and many more grins were made because of it. For that I’m grateful.

One of the video viewers wrote this poem. Actor, Energy Practioner, (and bouffon), Tom Tassé permitted me to share it with you.

To the Buffoonery Queen of  Hearts – Princes and Princesses

Genius of heart

buffoonery bandits

enlighten the world

with waves of laughter

your souls speak with

the tickle horn hidden

In your back pocket

engaging, releasing precious

hearts of the unsuspected

the wand of magic from each of

yours eyes, blessed thieves

of darkness stolen

tonight we sleep with

smiling faces

————-

Thank you, Tom…. my objective is met. If you haven’t enjoyed the video yet….. have a peek and dare to NOT smile!
