"Buses are soft to the touch, especially if you take them between the thighs and caress them with both hands, from the head towards the tail, from the engine towards the platform. But when you find yourself on this platform, then you perceive something rougher and harsher..."

The power of the crowd is often the weakness of its actual expression. Who we really are is not something we need to see in a performance. We can take a walk in the streets and move, like bodies, through the Symplegades of the crowd that defines us.

“Whoever be the individuals that compose it, however like or unlike be their mode of life (…) the fact that they have been transformed into a crowd puts them in possession of a sort of collective mind” (Le Bon, 1895)
