Celebrating 22 years of making Performance Art in Portland, Maine! (1995-2017)
"One of the most unforgettable experiences I've had in my life in the Arts happened at the end of Esduardo's 1996 work "In the Garden of Delights", performed outdoors at the Eastern Promenade in Portland, ME, just before the 4th of July fireworks.
At the end of the piece the 25 dancers, sweaty and covered with white body paint, walked uphill through the crowd with candles in our hands as the fireworks exploded above us. The crowd of thousands was so moved by the image and energy of the performance that they were silent, held in rapt attention and entranced by the power of Art."
-Joshua Bisset, Director Shua Group
"If you'd like to work with a master collaborator and visionary artist, get yourself down to the Casco Bay Movers studio on Saturday..."
