"Car Door Moment should be seen by the masses. It will change your life forever".

-Gary Clarke, choreographer.


Ever had the urge to jump off a train platform? To slap a random stranger? Or to open the car-door on the motorway?


We all naturally have impulsive thoughts and through our up bringing in modern day society, we know that to "act" on our impulses could be frowned upon. We have learnt how to hide, ignore and suppress these impulsive urges.....up until now.
