The couple in a cage:
A musical group who travelled around America, Europe and Australia, etc
Primitive people were placed in cages, and the people who went to the
VIDEO (couple in a cage)
The couple were chained by and held of people then later placed into cage where they were
observed by people in (Guatineau close to the gulf of Mexico)
The couple were dressed in animal skin, bird feathers in the head, paints on their face, they were
able to watch television and use computers (they picked up traditions really well, drinking coco-
cola, listening and dancing to music), they spoke a weird language that no one understood
They were treated really badly (placed in cages, chained up, fed food from outside the cage like
animals)
The two people in the cages were actors, they were studying the people who were studying them,
many of the visitors thought that they were real
Questions:
1.What does the exhibit remind you of? Have you ever seen anything like it? Where?
2.What kind of things mark th e couple “primitive”: language, immodest (they exposed
their body and didnt’ care), fascination with modern technology (tried to use boom box
but didnt really know how to use it), they had to be fed (didnt know how to feed
themselves, we usually only feed animals, etc), music, the way they look (hair style,
clothing, face paint, beads, leather, thread), the man was playing with a snake (they are
familiar with animals), ceremony/rituals (we can see them so things but we cant really
explain what they are doing), they like to be in cage (animals like that and not humans),
pacing, they had handlers (who wore gloves and treated them like specimen), they never
speak themselves
3.Why are people so quick to mis-read the exhibit/performance?: it happens in a
carnival and you dont really lie when they make it such a big deal, it is taking place at a
museum and there are scientists who are speaking about them so you t hink that it is real
