- “What a powerful embodiment of our journey as women. Such different elements, kind of shamanic and tribal. Loved it”
- “I recognised myself in the women on the stage. I felt empowered”
- “The Body Wisdom group brought beautiful thoughtful pensive moments - moving waves, body symmetry.”
- “I thought this was a very powerful performance. I liked that it was about women. I like the idea of ‘magic’ I seem to have lost the magic in the struggle to succeed - Succeed at what??”
