“Anybody who gets involved with us, whether by watching a performance or taking part in a workshop or residency…I want to take them on a trip, invite them into our world for a little while. I don’t want them to sit back and be entertained. I want them to feel they are part of something bigger. Let’s dive in and do this together.” – Hofesh
