On Sunday, January 19, from 2 to 3 p.m., Gemini Ink will present "A Different Notion of the Beautiful" at the Center for Spirituality and the Arts. Director Maia Adamina, an adjunct faculty member of the English department at San Antonio College, describes the script as an alternative, Eastern-influenced exploration of the aesthetic. "This is the perfect piece for this particular space," says Adamina, whose light-handed approach usually brings out the best in actors. Sandwiched between aphorisms from the Tao will be contemporary poems by D.H. Lawrence and others and prose by Grace Paley. Featured performers are New York actress Pamela Dean Kenny (last seen in The Laramie Project
at Jump-Start) and Our Lady of the Lake acting instructor Roger Alvarez. The audience will be invited to participate in moments of reflection accompanied by the sound of meditative chimes.
As the Dramatic Reader's Theater's loyal fans will tell you, it's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
