Video - Panta Rei Danseteater 'Lullaby'

Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

In a story to be filed under "only In Contemporary Dance" Ohad Fishof will be walking very slowly across London Bridge on June 21st as part of some bizzarre recognition that June 21st is the longest day of the year.

This chap is going to take hours, literally, to walk from one side of the bridge to the other and then back again. Mr Fishof will begin at 8AM which is during rush hour in one of the most people congested cities in the world. Londoners are expected to be thrilled at the presence of a slow moving "multi disciplinary artist" on the bridge as they make their way to whatever it is people in London do for a living.

Some local wags may suggest he tries the feat of endurance in a car because it would take a lot longer than walking it very slowly!

If you thought walking across a bridge could be done without financial assistance then you would be wrong. The website for this 'art' features logos for no less than 8 funding partners once of which is, of course, Arts Council England!

If you wish to see this work in action then a video demonstration is available on the website. You couldn't make this stuff up, you really couldn't!
