Finding beauty in everyday life brings a sense of triumph and hope. Calling forth beauty can help us in difficult times. Kristi and Adrian will move in a sacred space to explore, together with the audience, the essence of beauty...that which is hidden within, as they create a ritual of birth, confrontation, cleansing and renewal. In-Finite Beauty to us means the boundlessness of beauty contained inside in the finite human experience. How do we contain the infinite expanse of beauty inside the finite structure of the human identity? . . . . . #sfiaf #sfiaf2018 #arts #performance #performingarts #performanceart #artsfestival #artists #artsy #earlybird #sf #sanfrancisco #dance #music #workshops #masterclass #multidisciplinary #ritual #visualart
