Nate Hill shares the peril of being a popular public performance artist: overly enthusiastic audiences. After last night’s human-powered bouncy ride routine, the Club Animals ringmaster writes by email:
SPECIAL SHOUT TO THE KIDS WHO TACKLED ME ON THE BOUNCY RIDE TIP TONIGHT AND I TACKLED BACK ON THE L PLATFORM AND WE COMPASSIONATELY ALL COLLAPSED ON MY FREE BOUNCY RIDE SIGN AND THE GLASS SHATTERED UNDER US. THEN A RAINBOW APPEARED.
Anyone else who can tolerate strangers and turn abuse into iridescence is encouraged to audition for the group of mascot-headed artists. Club Animals is holding tryouts for â€œa few good animalsâ€ tomorrow, then slinging Candy Crack through the night. Next Friday, theyâ€™ll be back giving free bouncy rides on the Union Square L platform.
