Street Performances Done in old White Dress

The old dress had fake blood on it, because  it was a costume from a performance. It’s strange to me that people are still interacting with me. I guess people are attracted to the human spirit of wackiness.  I believe that the world is funny.  So its lighter.  simple funny stuff.

Street Performance At Berkeley College in California

Part 4 of the cult smash, “MBFHBM”. In this episode, you’ll see Matthew Silver shaking things up on the UC campus and Patrick Lancelin talk about Julia Butterfly Hill.


For a year in a half I did these performances on Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. My intention was to set off a wacky Love ripple.  Something through the air.  Something that people laugh at.  Always to become this organic performer taught from the universe.  So I exersized performance once a week most of the time. This is some of the documented footage.

The Chicken Man

Starring: Sarah Mayti and Matthew Silver

In this performance, a man in a chicken suit appears out of no where and starts dancing with us. Me and Sarah were having a fake argument as if we were a couple.

The King and Queen: Around the World

Starring: Marissa Mickelberg, Matthew Silver

Originally me and Marissa were trying to start the group. One of our performances we dressed up as queen and king. And acted as if we owned the place. At the end we danced to the song “Around the World” by Daft Punk. A small crowd gathered to watch us.

The Jestor Sings “Video Killed the Radio Star” by the Buggles

Starring: Sarah Mayti, Joanne Hsieh, Matthew Silver

In these performance we gather a small crowd and some audience participation. I like this clip a lot because it’s very corny. I’m a fan of corniness.

Random Spottings of Matthew Silver and friends on Bedford Ave.

I like these clips because I didn’t video tape them. People would take clips of me constantly on their video phone, still digital photo camera and put them up on youtube. Most of them aren’t edited. They are just put up as is.
