When my husband, Tony Martin, and I arrived, the performance, "Resilient Circles," was already in progress.

After the above portion of the dance concluded, the dancers asked audience members to form a circle around one of the structures they had created. We joined hands, tied strips of fabric onto a wire ring as we listened to a wish from each participant.

Beacon Dancers moved onto symbolic weaving looms and continued to move as the sun began to set.

Nothing can compare to being a part of dance, outside in the beautiful cool fall weather with the sun setting on us. Bathed in the golden light of the setting sun, we audience members were transfixed as dancers moved toward us and began speaking to us.
|CONNECTION WITH THE AUDIENCE. Look at the sun on the dancers face. Look at the engaged audience member. See the Atlanta Beltline extended back beyond the Beacon Dance performance space! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)|
Taking dance outside and being with audience members is a warm, personable acquaintance with the ARTS. Our city of Atlanta is offering us a life-giving force on the Beltline!
|ART IN PROGRESS. Lionel Daniels, performance painter and artist, worked steadily as the dancers moved nearby. He was surrounded by his family seated in lawn chairs. How great is that! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)|
