- CHINA - This past summer I was invited to teach and direct a play with the students of Chongqing China for a summer theater workshop! This experience changed my life forever in the most positive way! It was a great success!
We launched the Alchemy theater and film workshop and I was just invited back to go back this year for two more workshops. This time in Shanghai and Chongqing and for a film workshop. The students transformation was profound to watch. Biggest compliment I got was after the show when everyone was crying out of joy .....Some of the Chinse teachers said..." How did you do that? None cries in China!"
