What I liked

The chemistry Between Beamish and Peters was magnetic- performers that have rapport and fluidity with each other. They take each other in and react to what is being given to them- which seems like something that should always happen, but these ladies did so effortlessly. PROS.

The transitions, the music, the sayings – created a world and atmosphere that was bleak and anxious, and felt prophetic of the kind future we will have.

Peters voice was made for this- haunting and sweet, comforting and yet pained.

What I didn't like

improved? eh..maybe be careful of the mic levels. But I have sensitive little baby rat ears so might just be me.

My overall impression

The kind of brilliance and beauty that reaches your inner soul, and reminds you the power that art- when from a genius and pure place, can have.
