Wonderful show!, Great acting, Great dancing, Beautiful tech, Absorbing

See it if A beautiful fusion of theater and dance. Gabri is incredibly talented and pulls you into the story immediately. Loved it.

Don't see it if You don't like combining theater and dance. But give it a chance. It's a beautiful show. I hope Gabri does a sequel; I want to know more.

Enchanting

See it if you want to experience a life story, an intimate setting, great use of photography, light, movement and a few carefully chosen props.

Don't see it if you dislike a small theater, movement as a form of expression, or would prefer a standard play. Read more

"Transitions from storytelling to movement are seamless and Christa’s background as a dancer and choreographer are evident; she captures the vulnerability of a child surrounded by war, the confusion and frustration of a daughter watching her mother’s slide into dementia, and the struggle of an aging woman losing physical and mental capabilities. The film portions of the show are best when Christa interacts with them...Gabri Christa has created a rich and moving tribute to her mother."
