A compelling and heartfelt experiment with music, dance, and narrative, Anabella's portrayal of a woman managing trauma and suicide (accompanied by an excellent ensemble of musicians), was filled with a joy for being alive and a sadness for the potential of self-inflicted death.... full review

JULIE DENNIS certified reviewer June 15, 2019
Stunningly beautiful. I can't stop thinking about last nights performance of Alive-ish. The music, the dance, the song and Anabella....exquisite. My heart split open and humanity rushed in...tenderness, compassion, love, anger, sadness...it all came up during the course of the performance. Thank you.... full review
