Dancers Who Shoot Lasers From Their Butts Truly Suffer For Their Art (NSFW)

Performing with Young Boy Dancing Group can be a real pain in the ass.

Putting a laser in your butt isn’t nearly as glamorous as it sounds, kids.

Young Boy Dancing Group, a collective of contemporary European performers, is best known for inserting green lasers into their anuses while they writhe around on the floor to Enya remixes, among other songs.

“They challenge notions of gender and sexuality and constantly question institutionalized settings,” Chart Art Fair curator Mette Woller explains to Thump. “It makes you either cry or get offended.”

But audiences may not be the only ones crying. “Sometimes it’s a bit painful,” troupe co-founder Manuel Scheiwiller tells Thump. “There’s this one guy who joined the show in Berlin one day and he had this huge laser. I saw him taking it out—we always put a condom over the laser to stay a bit clean—and his condom was just bloody. It was gross. I was like, ’He’s going way too far, it’s too big!'”

Scheiwiller also says that the troupe now avoids nightclub appearances after a show in Vienna where “someone, like a stranger, pushed Tommy’s laser back into his ass.”

Young Boy Dancing Group has gotten significant flak on its official Facebook page for swiping the butt-laser concept from performance artist Empress Stah. “The laser thing comes from a woman in Ibiza,” Scheiwiller admits. “She’s a club performer; I don’t know her name. We once saw a GIF [of her].”
