“INSIDE OUT” - A live collective performance "What defines beauty? What is Beauty?"

"Inside Out" explores the experience and perceptions of beauty by using the body as a vehicle of expression.

Through the process of transformation the performance troupe will elaborate on themes of self-indulgence and the desire for the attainment of material beauty - but - ultimately returning to the concept of internal beauty, reminding us, we are perfect, whole, and complete just the way we are. Audience participation is encouraged as we are asked to reveal our own concepts and ideas of beauty....

(note : this performance art piece involves some nudity which is veiled head to toe in white body paint.)

Accompanied by the improvisational music of Caravan to Pollenland and including words from a live audience feed stating what beauty is to them --- performers will intertwine symbols, choreography, and objects into a live collaborative painting performance.
