Over 100 people attended this vibrant gathering of diverse dance & voices. Here are some thoughts from witnesses at One World:

– “We need more time. We need more opportunities like this for people to have these kind of conversations”

– “Very nice. do it again!”

 – “I have been gifted serendipitously. Tonight i was transported out of my self into another dimension. Timeless here… an endless well of joy and wonder tapped into something precious.  I wanted to stay forever…”

– “I appreciate seeing multiple aesthetics in the same space but ESPECIALLY appreciated the dialog and facilitators who helped instigate such important conversations which don’t happen enough.”

– “I would caution against asking for multiplicity-oriented feedback…felt unsafe at moments”

– “Excellent format! Fabulous dance participants! Astounding Space!”

“I really opened my eyes to the art. Unity brought these different groups together”

– “I appreciate the thoughts and opinions that being brought up due to these programs.  I feel and see similarities among all the pieces i witnessed tonight: connection, control and abandonment!

– “Thank you for giving the opportunity to see and discover all these talents and for the possibility to talk directly with them”

“Awesome!”
