“It is in the creative process itself that ‘Paint By Number’ tells a story of humanity, humor, peace, passion, and life. This process is a doorway into a unique experience that will leave each audience member with an urge take a dip in the powerful paint elixir.“
Cindy Ellen Russell, Honolulu Star Bulletin

One of the stars in IONA's Salon Series, 'Paint By Number' features 10 dancers and live music by jazz fusion band, The Quadraphonix. IONA dancers are human paintbrushes and pallets, beginning the evening in the fertile white void of a blank masterpiece-to-be. As the dynamics pick up, the white floor canvas is no longer pristine; the stage comes alive with a new dimension of movement and color complemented and commanded by the Quadraphonix' live music.
