Van Gogh, enthusiastic

Stunning, surprising, cutting edge....the performance "NO LiGHT, NO LIFE" excited the audience at Speyer Hall, in New York City by presenting a unique combination of dance, music and painting. "Once you have seen a performance like this,  you realize how much more powerful artforms are when they join effort.", an overwhelmed spectator stated in the O&A that followed the performance.

Allison Jay.Baber gave an extraordinary performance, personifiying "CREATIVITY", that inspired Vincent Van Gogh - danced by Matthew Westerby. Late in his life Van Gogh became a painter, after having been a preacher  for some time. Van Gogh painted for no more than 10 years, and had an immense struggle accepting divinity in his art, he even denounced his belief in order to find the truth and purity in creation. In Marla Hirokawas interpretation Van Gogh lost his inner battle of selfdoubt and selfdestruction, but something eternal lived on for ever: Art and creativity, inspired by something much more important than Life, the divine light.

Light Artist Eva Flatscher received standing ovations for an immensly powerful, enlightened live painting performance.
