Reviews

“A very entertaining show… whimsical, playful, energetic and unique… two very talented and dynamic female artists. Not to be missed!”       

   Emily Bernard Coonerty Santa Cruz, USA

 

“These performers bring imagination to play. Be prepared to smile, chuckle, and thoroughly enjoy the time spent being entertained by these two very talented artists.”  

Hannah Lathan, Speech Pathologist,  USA

 

“Told with an inventive playfulness that engages a contemporary audience, they explore serious issues with disarming naïveté and artistic generosity, without becoming preachy, self-indulgent or predictable. ” 

Audience Member,  South Africa

 

These issues are global warming, death, and loss of the natural world.
