"Theatre is a beautifully powerful, dynamic, and integral art form. I believe that theatre can be used to connect people, to share stories that are vital in understanding who we are as human beings, and how we relate to each other on an intimate level. With each theatrical and artistic encounter and experience there is possibility and opportunity, the potential for us to gather, commune, and actively engage in a ritual that has been occurring since our beginning. I take this understanding with me during each project, and continue to question, experiment with, and imagine the future of this mysterious, yet transformative force. "
