In The Spot - Caroline Fogg, Alesandra Perdichizzi, Chris Peacock, Shacura Wade, John Swapshire, John Roberts

"For the Love of ..." Friday by Cleo Parker Robinson dancers from Denver.You missed this one (and it was SOOOO good). Don't miss tonight

Come tonight (Sat) for Aztec/modern/ballet fusion from Mexico

I meant to have some pictures from the run (no costumes) this morning but when I got back to process my files I ran out of hard drive space. Fast trip to Microcenter with a return, install and format. It will copy over this entire Festival on the Vine set of files to the new drive, while I head to the theater to shoot video and stills tonight.

Festival On The Vine
Crisol ac DANZA FUSON 8pm/The GEM

Tonight, make sure to get to the GEM 18th and Vine district for Crisol ac Danza Fuson's incredible dancing. They fuze Aztec and folkloric, traditional and ballet and modern and hip hop and, and - seamlessly. Truly beautiful. The opening includes text slides in English with spoken Spanish voice over which comes off beautifully, making the Spanish sound much like a music track (to me). Terrific group of dancers. You will be so pleased you came out.

The last two nights have been badly under-attended and each night was a superb set of performances. Some of the best I've seen in KC, period.

BIG RECOMMENDATION!
