Tania Stavreva is giving two recitals at the Metropolitan Room, 34 West 22nd Street, next week and she’s getting carefully kitted out for the occasion. Not just kitted. Body painted.

Tania has a creative relationship with body painter Danny Setiawan and will be displaying their latest work in recital. She has posted some new shots on her facebook page
