Beauteous

The remarkable occasion when an evening accomplishes exactly what it set out to do. A seamless forty minutes of poetic interplay between AARON BOOTHBY, CANISIA LUBRIN, and KLARA DU PLESSIS, (a full, appreciative house, spellbound), meticulously crafted and hosted by du Plessis. Beautiful indeed.  knife | fork | book Photos: KIRBY
