Peter Sharp starts a train dance party.
SYDNEY — Is your Monday getting you down? This will change everything.
One guy from Perth, Western Australia, is trying to affect the way we interact in the world. Social artist Peter Sharp uses his performance art to cheer people up and try to create a better world, starting with himself.
From spontaneous dance parties on trains through to dancing in a water feature while dressed in a suit, Sharp inspires others to get involved and share a moment of pure bliss.

His most recent work, on a train in Fremantle, Western Australia, in August, creates a beautiful moment on a normally bland morning commute. Sharp announces: "I don't want money, I just want to spread a bit of happiness," before breaking into a high-intensity dance down the aisle.
It takes a moment for the strange glances to stop, and for others to get involved, but before long the entire train is enjoying a raging dance party.
"If we can start a party, what is stopping you from having a conversation?" the video asks.
Sharp is interested in human interaction and uses spontaneous flash mobs to bring a little bit of joy to the world.
"I have learned that my actions no matter how small at first can send shockwaves of inspiration through and into the lives of thousands of others and that to me is a great contribution," he wrote on his blog.
Perhaps, Sharp's most beautiful Perth work is when he encouraged city workers to let their inhibitions go and break out in the main business district in Perth in July.
Sharp started his movement in Spain, with Good Vibrations Barcelona before hitchhiking 1,500km's from Barcelona to Croatia in a business suit. He lives by the mantra "life begins at the end of your comfort zone," and tries to inspire others.
He has recently returned to Australia to bring his smile-inducing social art Down Under, so expect more dance parties erupting in strange places.
