Press reviews and Comments:

"It was a compelling, moving, thought provoking piece. . . .the dancers were spare, yet powerful and engaging. . . . I hope it might reach a greater audience and critical acclaim". Ingrid Caruso

" I was enthralled with the elegance of this idea . . .I was enveloped in the multi-sensory moment of these white, abstract forms coming to life to the music and movement, only to be taken [by the trophy collector] and placed on the wall. . .This is perfect for so many young people to explore".
