Tandy Beal joins her old friend, Bobby “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” McFerrin in Abu Dhabi late April/May– thirteen time zones away! Shetandy.jpg will dance with him in performances at Al Ain and the Emirates Palace. She will also stage several local dance groups for the performances. What an adventure in cross-cultural art-making with Arabic singers and dancers-and Bobby’s American magic!

And kudos to Beal & Company awarded $15,000 by the National Endowment for the Arts  for an upcoming full-length production with dancers, actors and video.

Especially in this fiscal climate, making art is always the best revenge!
