After performance works, it is imperative to have an audience discussion so that everyone can hear from each other's different perspective, be able to ask questions, and make networking connections to take further proactive action. From laughter to tears, the amazing emotional investment and outpouring from audiences is the power of moving towards an enlightened culture.

 

Praise from audiences:


“[Jodi Netzer is] a phenomenon...”
-Whit Maglaughlin, New Paradise Laboratories, Director


“I feel inspired to participate in my surroundings to stop the slow but certain destruction of what is not material. Keep up the good work.”
-Martina Plag, Mum Puppettheatre


“For pure & easy joy, activism through humor. [I feel] more thoughtful, a desire to be an 'interpreter' - to share how I feel and find how others see from their vantage points. Wow.”
-Volunteer from Clean Air Council


“The power of presence... the ENERGY... [I am] charged up by the verve and dedication.”
-Joseph Newland


“The audience can be led by the performance with their own experience. Creative and innovative excitement... [I am] just invigorated to know that the youth will continue to fight against injustice... committed to change and hope.”
-Joan Kosloff


“The performance dealt with thoughts on human existence. It brought a thousand questions into my mind about life and the universe, and led me to think in a new way about the human experience.  The ego; the knowledge that we exist is a powerful thing.”
-Erica Corbo


“The idea and intensity... excellent.”
-Zivile Pupinyte


“Harmony, unity - working as a group. I enjoyed the group's enjoyment of dancing together. Your focus on major issues is very important. Thanks.”

“[Jodi] inspired my insight. I see emotions of fear on my background inspired by political events.”
-David S.


“The high energy level... I feel lighter.”
-Margaret B.


“By [Jodi's] facial expressions from sorrow, pain, happiness, horror, shock, fear... How quickly she could change, in a split second. I felt through her. To joy to sadness and back again. Kept me on the edge. Wonderful display!”
-Scott H.


“[The performance] made me think more of how “faith” is simpler than the Church... how well you lead me to ideas, but you let me figure out what they are. Also, the likeness in frustration towards our current day and age... there needs to be change. The skills and dance were overwhelming and fun!”
-Brice


“Realization, Connection. Complete dramatic control, touching something so real. There was such a sadness, by the end I felt like a crumbled piece of paper, but there was release. Thank you!! Keep going...”
