This is why we do what we do. This is why we write. This is why create theatre. Because we are here to create the links and the bridges between communities. We are here for people to see that each other are human beings. We are here because we believe in humanity, we believe in the spirit, we believe in the power of story to change our hearts, our lives, our world.”
