Black Diamond - Tour


BLACK DIAMOND - a new sparkling and critically acclaimed performance by Tim Rushton

 
With Black Diamond, Tim Rushton returns to an abstract universe, focusing on the aesthetic and form. The performance’s organic flow juxtaposes the diamonds’ sharpened edges and culminates in the revelation of a simple, beautiful naked body, the symbol of a hopeful and sensitive humanity.
