This is a question Pretentious bollocks

Possibly the worst event I ever went to was an evening of turntablists in London. The lights went down, the first guy put a cymbal onto a turntable, dropped the needle on it and left it making screeching noises for ten minutes.

When the lights came up, half the audience had snuck out.

What's the most pretentious rubbish you've ever been to see in the name of art?

any youth drama production
you know the kind of thing, you're at some school concert to see your mate play the piano, or play in his band, or sing a song or something. midway through the concert some of the people doing Drama will put on some serious play, involving pretentious crap like having someone next to one of the actors putting their hand on his shoulder and saying what he's thinking.

one i saw recently was like this.

one 'actor' pointed at someone in the audience and said "bang bang you're dead". then someone else said it, then someone else and then there ended up about 10 people shouting it and pointing over and over again with a crescendo until the sound was annoyingly ubiquitous.

then suddenly they all stopped.

and the first one said "bang bang we're all dead"

that was it. it got applause.

apparently it was something about gun culture. sounds like a load of old bollocks to me. i hate drama.
