The One in the Yellow....

My earliest performance opportunities were with Diane Webber's Perfumes of Araby. Each of us had a signature costume color, mine was yellow. One memorable performance at a popular art event called the Pumpkin Festival included a serious North African Guedra dance. The company all lines up stage front to create a screen while our Guedra dancers position themselves mid stage. We are packed tightly shoulder to shoulder, impulsing to the dramatic beat with great solidarity: traditional hand gestures, chest drops, all very serious and trance like. This mood was broken however by a guy at the back of the 100 plus audience, who stood on his chair, raised his beer glass and shouted "The one in the yellooooow...." then actually fell backwards like a tree that had just been cut! I hope he was OK!
