This video was filmed mid-February in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province in eastern China.

 

 

Artist Kang Yi, who is behind this performance, says the goal was to promote gender equality and denounce domestic violence.

 

Kang Yi had previously staged a similar performance, in which he crawled around the streets of downtown Wuhan on a leash held by a woman. At the time, he had been widely criticised online; his critics argued that respecting women did not equate to humiliating men.

 

He’s planning on taking his new act on tour with stops in Chengdu, Nanjing, Hangzhou and Shanghai.
