Silfredo La O

Painting dancer at San Diego Airport

If you’re near San Diego International Airport mid-day on Friday, September 2, 2011, make your way to the pre-security area of International arrivals in Terminal 2 east.

From 12:45 –1:45pm there will be a live painting and dance performance called The Traveler by Silfredo La O.

Here’s a short video that shows how he does indeed create a painting with dance.

The performance includes narration by T. Ford of Black Storytellers of San Diego and accompaniment by percussionist Yiriba of Teye Sa Thiosanne of African Drum and Dance Co.

The event celebrates Arts Month San Diego and the ART SAN DIEGO Contemporary Art Fair, which begins on September 1.
