"I found the work to be overflowing with talent and craft, and like no other piece of theatre I've ever been a part of. I was drawn-in by Anna-Helena's presence, confidence and ease on stage, and awed by the creativity in the storytelling. I am so excited by it!"
Accredited Rodenburg Teacher, William Ryder

Doctoral Supervisor and Principal of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA), Niamh Dowling
"A beautiful complexity of stories and identities honored the way true teachers hold space for their students"
Director of VASTA 2022, Dory Sibley
"Having observed Anna-Helena's work for 20 years, I appreciated the integration of multi-media elements into her show. Her research into creating a practice that is truly inclusive... This work is groundbreaking"
