What is

beauty and the beat

An interaction haunts you.  Oddly, you recall the incident, a mere blip, tiny gasp.  The beauty of the moment is that it has a life of its own, like a disaster waiting to happen if a tree falls in a forest!

Physical and fun, Beauty and the Beat is about interchanges, a leftover interaction that makes a lasting impression.  You recall the incident over the years, though at the time, it was a mere blip. Short scenarios gathered from real-life emerge, telling of errant neighbors who made a big impression; a memory that has grown larger than life.  After all, you are neighbors, you hardly know each other. For example, your neighbor comes to the door, “sweaty, panting, and wearing a wife-beater t-shirt, eating green grapes, and tells you to cut off the branches of your tree that hangs over his fence because of dropping pine needles and the disaster waiting to happen should the tree fall over!  It makes a big impression.”

This performance contains sensitive content.  Stories contain dimensions of diversity and we honor the beauty of the moment of quirky interactions because you know when you are right, you are right.  The individual intersection of these experiences must be valued and enjoyed.
