October 2010

Comments from St Louis audiences last month include:

“Symphonic !” – Charlie Rose, Director of Edison Theatre

” Epic!” – Seventh Grader, St Louis

We were especially excited that our visit to St Louis inspired the Unversity’s first Farmers Market – in reflection of our dance tributes to the Indigenous planting techniques as well as the  Three Sisters ( Corn Beans Squash) , and the  Dance of Sunflowers.. farmers’ market poster draft 2
