Press Quotes

"A tribal celebration danced around a metaphorical campfire. Dancers threw their fists in the air, pounded their chests in unison, sat cross-legged in a circle, and shook their heads at the gods. Those who doubt that dance can be intoxicatingly thrilling should see it."

- The Seattle Times
