Loose Underwear

Dagmar Stanaova's "Loose Underwear" left tear-streaked marks of her genius as I settled into its emotional impact of raw honesty, smart humor and the personal reckoning with her past, that is all of ours, through the lens of her mother's experience as a Holocaust survivor. In short, I was awakened and moved. Told with grace, wit and the kind of connection that can only come from the truth of who she is sparked a universal truth of knowing: We all come from a lineage of ghosts, cellular memories, and the creative power to change the course of our personal and collective histories.
