A performance in public space.

By suddenly resounding revue-like music and an almost casual seemingly dance act, a filthy stairway in the City of Stuttgart, marked by nightly alcohol abuse and surrounding snack stalls, gets the chance to breathe a whiff of Las Vegas’ good old glorious days for a little moment...
An, as abrupt as short, irritation of people’s everyday shopping grind, which obviously leaves them speechless, not sure wether to ignore this awkward situation or to sink into deep abashment, requesting the “shiny” stairs for help.
