“I am awed by Rebecca’s capacity to meld human diversity into beautiful, touching, harmonious and professional theatre. She has a very special ability to create a culture in Total Ensemble that seems to invite, encourage and demand the full and open hearted participation of all members. The ensuing freedom of expression, and human connection and care amongst performers is the foundation for the beautiful theatre that invariably stops my mind and opens my heart when I watch Total Ensemble perform. I wish Rebecca every success in widening activities to allow more people the opportunity to participate, and more audiences the enjoyment of witnessing Total Ensemble. It is a delight to support them.”
