A beautiful video tour of the exhibit of Adi Da's Image-Art (and of the visitors to the exhibit) at the 2013 STRARTA Art Fair, in the Saatchi Gallery, London, from October 9-13, 2013. Exhibited works are drawn from Adi Da's Orpheus One Suite, Linead One Suite, and Quandra Loka Suite. The tour includes a glimpse of some of the other art works at the Art Fair as well.
This brief video clip presents some highlights from Part 1 of the three-part ballet, Not-Two Is Peace, from the March 15, 2013 performance in Florence, Italy. The complete ballet is 1 hour and 20 minutes in length. It was choreographed by Keith Ferrone. The art of Adi Da Samraj is displayed in monumental projections of beautiful geometries, color, and light, at times animated along with the dance. The searing, original music score by Andrea Portera is lifted to new heights with the addition of a female vocal ensemble, Trio Canora.
In this video clip, Benedetta, Egle, Angelo, and Ylenia of the Florence Dance Company grace the stage of Italy's palatial theater setting, Teatro della Pergola. Part 1 of the ballet is performed by 1 male dancer and 3 female dancers — at times reminiscent of Balanchine's 1928 Apollo.
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".
