“It is, as if Jessica Burri
were not telling the stories,
but rather that the stories were
telling themselves. ... The mystical
linguistic beauty of the Native American
stories and the vibrating sounds of the
singing bowls have taken on a life of their
own as a complete work of art. But that
is not where the truth really lies – it is in
the empty spaces between, which are
filled by the listener’s own feelings.”

“I think it was
the best event we
have had thus far.”
