Re-Cap : of the Monday Night Hybrid Movement: Dance and Open Mic
I'm gonna be way honest with you, I never been to a Broadway show, or to a theater of any sort that presented dance, singing or event that held tons of people, like that of a movie theater; at least the latter provides pop corn. On Monday night at a mini Theater called THE TANK, I was ask to paint live while either dancers or poets gets down to recite or perform their art, while I do mine on the side, with my accompanied friend GEO, a fellow graff writer. The event held several dances, that were all unique and captivating. The Ballet with modern moves and attire place me in very familiar to their body communication. I was very fortunate to have been invited by a member that no longer participated at this program, which then lead me to experience such a once in a life time view of acrobatics and beautiful dance movements, in mid air.
This viewing was done AFTER I was on stage with GEO. We both had a time line to finish a painting, ( and talk about constraints, I had to complete this painting within 30-45 minutes!!! That's right, UN heard of. I thought I was in the AMERICA GOT TALENT audition at first...) I was also fortunate to have a dear friend from High school attend the show case, who was able to take pictures of me painting. I owe her so much, Thank you Nia Adino
