“Languedoc has fashioned something valuable for people who want to begin to know more about indigenous world views and perspectives and are serious about reconciliation. I recommend this presentation. It’s suited for all ages.”

“The actor (and writer) moves from one character to another beautifully and seamlessly, holding our attention through the winding tale.”
