Had a great day at Mintfest – a weekend of street entertainment in Kendal – today. We took in a number of acts but our own personal favourite was ‘Mannekino’ by Oddlings from The Netherlands. In short, the act involved a guy (a window dresser) putting out some clothes on a rail and then going into the town hall to fetch a mannequin to dress. He returned carrying her on his shoulder and then set about getting her dressed. Only it wasn’t a mannequin at all – it was a real person. Take a look at the video of the same act performed in Bremen.
