Hed: These People Dress as Sheep As...Performance Art?

Performance art comes in all shapes, sizes, and apparently, species. An interactive Canadian theater and dance group called CORPUS has a show named Les moutons, and, well, we just have to let them describe it.

"Reality meets fantasy in this wordless live installation that recreates a bucolic country scene in a typical urban setting," the group wrote in the show description. "Travel to a strange & hilarious universe as CORPUS takes you through a carefully studied, surrealistic overview of sheep behaviour....Routine activities include: shearing, feeding, milking and many more."

The show is intriguing, if not odd.

Once you start watching though, it's almost impossible to look away.

And YouTube is just a wealth of CORPUS' videos.

The performances have captivated people across social media (and real life too, obviously). Some have commented that the performers really nail the whole "acting like sheep" thing.

The actors COMMIT to the role:

The performances take place all over the world — here's a shot from one in Japan.

And Australia ...

And, of course, the U.S.

No matter where the performances take place, they're always surreal and captivating.
