Dagmar Stansova knocked it out of the park. I laughed and danced in my seat. I wept. Dagmar is masterful. Her stage presence is magnetic, accessible, and richly textured. Her story, a combo of how one finds oneself/who one is/how one becomes who one is + who the child is/who the parent is/what they are together + the Holocaust + what/who one loves in one’s life + who came before us + who we will become + James Brown—just to trying to abstract it—shone light into corners of darkness. Her insights are profound and uplifting. The manner in which she shares them is riveting. Her spirit and resolve are contagious. Her telling of her journey is moving and powerful. I can’t stop thinking about her show.
