Press Quotes  
“…a major Monk work. … glorious.”
Los Angeles Times

“Monk's music retains its seductive buoyancy…and her writing for string quartet exults in a newly idiomatic command of the medium. …Monk's choreographic palette is arresting.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“This evening-length work—a combination of Meredith Monk’s pristine music and iconoclastic theatricality and artist Ann Hamilton’s raw, sensuous visual elements—will refocus your perceptions of music-theater.”
The New York Times
