“Feeling emotionally touched, charged, inspired.”
“A light inhabits us. Suddenly, we feel the pulsations of the world. The journey begins with Kristina and Sadé Alleyne, who came from London. With the poignancy of poetry, in gestures cut with a line, they recount the duality of emotions and this time spent in the reconciliation of contradictory feelings. A delight”
“Through their blend of genres, they explore the concepts of incarceration”
