What a wonderful journey and exploration on the notion of beauty.

My friend and I who attended both fancy ourselves as storytellers and poets and we were blown away by Rosie Waters’ wonderful storytelling and poetry. A Gamilaroi woman she painted pictures of family, life, connection to country, beauty and her poems and performance moved us both enormously. Along with her sassy cheekiness, great storytelling.

Karen Law has a wonderful skill for taking the ordinary and turning it into a little meaningful gem of a song. Her beautiful voice and lyrics, gentle, lulling, and heartfelt and the notion of beauty.

Mira Chorik brought us into the story space with explanation of the themes to be explored in their focus on the notion of beauty. She guided and enchanted us through the different sections with story, song and movement. She held the show together until the final flourish and reveal.

Thought provoking show. Captivating
