The shows were fantastic this weekend! We had a world wind day on Saturday with rehearsal from 11am until 6:30pm, followed by the first show at 7:30. Sunday was a little bit more mellow with no all day rehearsal and a 6:30pm call time for the performers.
Many of the audience members told us afterwords that they were truly moved by the piece. It was a very special moment for Kiori and I, with all of our hard work coming to fruition and the premier meeting with such success! The performers gave their hearts to it and we all felt like we were part of something special.
Kiori and I would like to take a moment and just thank all of you once again for helping make this happen, we couldn't have done it without you! Thank you!! We'll be posting pictures and video as they become available, and we'll be sending out your gifts soon.
What's next for Water in the Desert? We're planning on bringing it out and about! That's right, tour. If you think you'd like to see it in your town or city and/or you think there might be a good venue for it, drop us a line. We'd love to share the piece with you all personally.
Thanks once again, and all the best.
Sincerely, Aaron & Kiori
