To everybody who has viewed our video of Everybody, to all the lovers and haters and the WTF’ers.
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.
