The Florence Dance Company prepares and performs at the Pergola Theatre, Florence, in the March 2013 performances of Not-Two Is Peace. Accompanied by interviews with some of the dancers and members of the public responding to the performance.
A few scenes from the preparation at the Teatro della Pergola in Florence on March 14, 2013. Some views of the famous old theatre itself. The use of back projection for the video produces very crisp images of Adi Da's art, without the projection being interrrupted by the dancers (who would stand between the projector and the lower part of the screen in a traditional forward projection system).

Interview with gallerist Pien Rademakers, who displayed works from Adi Da's Quandra Loka Suite in her Galerie Pien Rademakers in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and also exhibited them at the 2012 Pan Amsterdam Art Fair.
Pien talks about the significance of Adi Da's Image-Art, and the importance of spreading the word and having increasingly more people experience it.
On July 22 and 23, 2012, the Florence Dance Company presented a multimedia spectacle entitled Not-Two Is Peace. The performance at the Bargello Museum in Florence, Italy brought together image-art by Adi Da Samraj, original ballet by the Florence Dance Company, and live music — a dynamic exploration of the principles of world peace and prior unity as described in Adi Da's book, Not-Two Is Peace.
Part Two of the performance featured music for solo piano, composed and performed by Naamleela Free Jones, and presented here in this commemorative recording. The CD also features photographs from the performance as well as the city of Florence.
Two important art exhibitions in which Adi Da was invited to participate were the Venice Biennale (2007) and the Cenacolo di Ognissanti in Florence (2008), where His Art was exhibited in the same room as the famous large fresco by Domenico Ghirlandaio of "The Last Supper".
Beezone's Ed Reither talks to Frank Marrero (author of The View from Delphi) on the origins of theater, and discusses the topics of Eleutherios, Orpheus, Greek mysteries, The Upanishads and the connection to the Greeks. The discussion revolves around the transition from mythology, rhapsodies and prosaic thought and communication and its relationship to Truth (Aletheon) and the connection to Adi Da Samraj's Literature, Theater and Image Art.
