Something unexpected in Stockholm pedestrian zone…

Something unexpected in Stockholm pedestrian zone… The shooting in Gamla Stan later in the afternoon was crowded in an expected dimension. It was an experiment for us as well as for the people that we filmed in the most famous and at the same time tiny narrow street Västerlangatan. In concert dress, I played, eye closed in the middle of this street, people rushing by, some were astonished about this unusual happening, some were in their usual rush so they didn’t realize, some stopped to watch and listen, especially kids (maybe for them it was normal😊).
