 "Joan Padeo was the performer to watch. She had a powerful stage presence and ability to surrender to the moment and to be fully engulfed in the music and movement."

"One special moment was when Joan Holly Padeo's light breathy voice sang [Patsy Cline's] 'Crazy,' so moving, so unpretentious."

"[Joan's] very descriptive telling of Emmett Till's young battered face while lying in an open casket is especially unsettling. The choreography is strong and the movement rigorous."

"I always know when a dance is good when I look at my notes to find that I stopped writing. [Fotos Antiguas] caused that response...[it] felt ageless."

"This is a piece that I didn't know I needed until I saw it...nothing short of breathtaking."
