Theatre for an audience of one

"  By the end of the Battersea festival there had been 10,000 performances in the center’s big building in southwest London. With dozens of choices each day, one could be bathed in the nude by a performer, “kidnapped,” slid out of a window and much more, all for the price of admission. "

What the?  New York Times reveals a new trend in thespianism - where the play's the thing that revolves around you.  Performances are continuous, with audience member joining in one-by-one for such odd experiences as a hand massage, sitting in an office or the forementioned naked ablutions.
