What I liked

I liked the pre show music, actually loved it.
I liked what Makena did with her character crossing the ice. I was holding my breath with her. I liked the direction, the performance, the language and dialect. When it was over, I wanted more. It didn’t feel like an hour.

What I didn't like

N/A

My overall impression

Powerful, profound and painful. One of many untold stories that need to be told. Thankful to Makena for performing this piece and giving life, breath and soul to this unimaginable real life experience.
