"It was a joy to sit in the space where the line between performer and audience were, blissfully blurred, crossed, twisted and turned. Words, movement and pockets of perfect stillness carried the stories from you to us and from us to you. Thank you for your crafted creativity and your devotion to the sacred space of story on a cellular and soulful level." Doreen Fatula
