The Rejoinder: Actress comes forward to ‘explain’ Farringdon dog leash stunt

A woman who baffled Londoners when she took a man on a leash for a walk around Farringdon has come forward to explain the stunt.

It was a theatrical project designed to create art by filming people’s reactions to the incongruous act, according actress Eden Avital Alexander, who spoke to the Evening Standard.

When pictures and video of the pair emerged last Friday, some suggested a PR company was behind the feat.

But Ms Alexander said: “It was not a BDSM or a PR stunt, the project seemed at the start like a funny thing to be a part of and was all about the audience, which for me I think is the most important part of acting.

“I believe that artists, actors especially, should take the audience out of their normal everyday life and make them think and feel other things, in this case was to make them laugh, but while doing it different things came up - though I definitely found the ‘cleaning product’ commercial and the ‘job centre’ commercial very amusing.”

She added that a video focusing on the public’s response to the stunt was currently being edited.
