Mineopticon II (SF & Vancouver)

Friday the 13th of June was a lucky day, well that and a fun day to boot.

Here is the grand daddy of the Diamond Boots Ensemble flitting about making sure the setup is smooth:


And a love note to our remote friends in Vancouver leading up to the pre-show.DSCF6399

There was just enough noise in the performance to make us really appreciate the effort that the eight horse dancers had gone through to make the show a feast for the eyes.

I am so glad I got to experience this “live.”  It was a perfect example of what is possible in a virtual space with audience separated by hundreds of miles and performers even more spread out…
