Audience responses to performances of HaMapah/The Map

"I enjoyed the performance: exquisite dancing, thought-provoking and seamless integration of movement, text/song, image--so much to admire!"
"It was a really beautiful piece last night! The dance and multi-media were just superb!"
"I was so moved by the performance and the follow up last night...this was so amazingly beautiful, creative, executed and magnificent that I am lost for words."
"I think that your work is about looking within, and connecting with our body-houses, so that we can appreciate our ancestry. You are creating a pathway for people to understand how to reconnect with provide possibility to a richer experience of one's own life...Societies can be changed this way for the better."
