The performance lasted a few seconds until the leading woman-officer (third from left) realised she was left to dance by herself. One of the security officers then turned off the portable radio they had brought and the group scattered. I got the chance to speak with one of them: “Josée wanted us to try and show everyone that we’re human too, that we like art and that we can be fun. She had this idea to use that new internet-thing (Flashmobs)” says STM Security employee, Simon Lachance. “We were all pumped up, but as soon as the music started, we had no idea what to do. We had never tried to dance in our lives”.
