The 24th of September of 2021, a group of 20 people met in Lund, Sweden.

 During that afternoon, we were doing different activities. Some of these activities involved acting in the streets of the city center and paying attention to peoples’ reactions at the same time.

In the video you can see some of the acts we filmed: Clarisse and Lucia performed a contemporary dance in the middle of a big square, Ali pretended to be falling twice in a row, and moreover… Nicolas popped the question to Olivia in front of Lund Cathedral! Another activity was asking strangers to say different phrases in a foreign language.

We could notice that while doing the same act, people reacted differently: most of the people had a good time, some of them seemed surprised, others offered their help, few other people were laughing at them, and, believe it or not, other people did not even notice something extraordinary was going on around them.

“While doing the activity I felt really good as the actions worked as a great team building activity that provided us with a fantastic atmosphere. We worked a lot, had a lot of fun and I think this is a perfect tool to interact with strangers and improve our English and social skills"
said Clemence happily.

 After this activity, we asked some of the participants what they could observe during the activity, how they felt while doing the actions, what was the most important thing during the activity, and a few other questions.
