My daughter, Cayley, and her friend, Crystal, performed a magical piece at the Untitled Arts Society on Friday night. Fortunate were those who had opportunity to attend the performance, in addition to taking in the visual art exhibit because it was so fleeting and yet so intense. I’m very proud of my daughter for this collaboration. It was courageous.
As six inches of my daughter’s hair was cut off toward the conclusion of the performance, the audience members gasped in unison. It was a stunning moment, leaving some observers quietly emotional and shocked…others, uttering their amazement in a whole number of ways.
The images, on their own, may not convey the narrative or the emotion expressed and the drawings and sculptural pieces that remain feel to be a mere residue to the experience.
Following the performance piece, the Haggard Beat performed in gallery and so there was an extension of magical energy and we all celebrated with great conversation and excellent music.
