Be sure to wear sunblock and sunglasses for this year’s Fourth of July outdoor-site-specific-performance!
The bright summer sunlight will leave you in a squinting haze, causing you to bang your head and see 50 stars. And your arms and legs – once adorned by your artfully bold costume – will be reminiscent of the 13 stripes of the American flag.
Move over Stars and Stripes; there’s a new most patriotic dancer!
Image descriptions: In the first illustration, a dancer lunges on a lawn wearing star-shaped glasses, red and blue stripes and star covered shorts, and waving an American flag. In the second illustration, the same dancer is illustrated from the chest up, sunburnt in the shape of stars around the eyes and stripes around the arms.
