    Not what I expected, but I’m so glad I saw it. A wonderful mix of art, storytelling, and connection. Butt magic and leaf dances. Thank you, thank you for this one.

    If you are expecting comedy, this isnt it. It is very interesting with a little audience participation.

    Stunning. The coordination with the music & voice over was spot on. The repetitive, but emphatic and building format was engrossing. The stories were each really lovely and how the tied together, with a lovely little whimsical visual, was beautiful. Really glad I caught this one.
