FF4 Dance Performances: Kissidugu

Kissidugu means "safe place" in the Kissi language of Guinea, West Africa. It is our intention for people of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds to feel safe when they see Kissidugu connect with the music and dance and of Guinea as shared by Fara Tolno, Artistic Director. Our mission is to build a school in Guinea where these valuable traditions of music and dance will continue to be available to the people of Guinea, as the trend of artists leaving the country for work in Europe and the U.S. continues to grow. We want to give back! (Please stop by our booth to learn more about the Kissidugu school project and donate or buy a t-shirt if you can!)

FF4 Burlesque: Angela "Lala" Lucero

I love doing what I do on stage.
It is my calling… be a professional tease………to flirt, be sassy & sensual and to captivate the attention of my audience. The self-expression I give while performing is something unique & genuine and it allows me to share the love I have for life with YOU. I have worked hard at my inner passion and I take it seriously. Even if it is the art of tease………
I am a professional and this is my job. 

I am an independent burlesque performer & pin-up model in Denver & the surrounding areas. I perform with local bands and other performers for an array of entertainment purposes – i.e. benefits, art & fashion shows, variety showcases, drag events etc. I continuously shoot with local & nationwide photographers for a variety of modeling & artistic purposes. I am also a member of the local performance troupe "Tranzcend" & a premier model for various websites.

FF4 Fashion Show and Booth: 9 Ether Clothing

FF4 Fashion Show and Booth:  

9 Ether Clothing

It begins with a single thread. 

The thread becomes cloth.

The cloth becomes a t-shirt.

The t-shirt is a metaphor:

hundreds of thousands of individual threads—brought together and intertwined—all working in concert to make something greater than their individual self could ever possibly be—existing as one to provide for man’s basic needs—and to carry a message to the world.

Welcome to nin\ether clothing company.
