I stumbled across the brilliant theatre group of sorts, Improv Everywhere, the other day and was pretty amazed – founded in 2001 in New York, they’ve been staging undercover performances in public for a decade now, ranging from spontaneous musicals in supermarkets to gathering thousands of people to do weird things according to instructions given by mp3 to public installations and interferences prompting a reaction.

It works along the classic hidden camera set-up, in a way, but without the glee and the schadenfreude, just a good sense of humour and the aim to make an ordinary moment, well, less ordinary. It’s interactive in the literal, analogue sense, it’s surprising and it’s utterly charming.
