Dagmar Stanaova's "Loose Underwear" left tear-streaked marks of her genius as I settled into its emotional impact of raw honesty, smart humor and the personal reckoning with her past, that is all of ours, through the lens of her mother's experience as a Holocaust survivor. In short, I was awakened and moved. Told with grace, wit and the kind of connection that can only come from the truth of who she is sparked a universal truth of knowing: We all come from a lineage of ghosts, cellular memories, and the creative power to change the course of our personal and collective histories.... full review

Dagmar Stansova knocked it out of the park. I laughed and danced in my seat. I wept. Dagmar is masterful. Her stage presence is magnetic, accessible, and richly textured. Her story, a combo of how one finds oneself/who one is/how one becomes who one is + who the child is/who the parent is/what they are together + the Holocaust + what/who one loves in one's life + who came before us + who we will become + James Brown--just to try to abstract it--shone light into corners of darkness. Her insights are profound and uplifting. The manner in which she shares them is riveting. Her spirit and resolve are contagious. Her telling of her journey is Her show is moving and powerful. I can't stop thinking about it. ... full review

How do you tell a story about the Holocaust without it being overwhelming? You sing in Yiddish, act, tell stories, puppeteer, clown, and bake... “Beautifully courageous and authentic performance. I laughed, I cried, and I was deeply moved.”

Forgetting not Forgotten

This multimedia, multiple character is a edutainment solo show. A performer takes on the role as caregiver after her mothers diagnosis with Alzheimers, and as the neighborhood becomes gentrified her world falls apart.
