Check out this video, just over a minute:
SPARK STORY is…
a unique one-woman musical that channels the inner bad*ass in your heart that’s aching to do ‘something’ with your life…

- Heart-opening original songs performed with live vocal looping
- Activating voices with *no pressure* invitations to join in, clap, stomp or chant

COMMENTS about SPARK STORY:
Your story reminded me of what I want most – to be at home, in me.
– Isabel, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Your piece really moved me, caused a definite shift from before the story and after the story. I am not the same person.
– Amma Li Grace, Portland
It really got inside here, under my heart, and opened up some deep parts of me.
– Nina Von Feldmann, Seattle
I can relate to all your characters – the good girl, the workaholic, the rebel, and still wanting to keep your heart. Even from the beginning I started to cry, with the little girl. It’s very powerful.
– Milena, Scotland
We can all understand this. I want my daughter and my mother to see it.
– Chris Hille, Seattle
Your performance was a joy to watch, to see you, hear you, feel you. You spoke about all of us… I heard the sound of my soul.
– Patricia, Argentina
It’s absolutely brilliant! We are not so unique as we all think.
– Vickie Dodd, Sacred Sound Works, Washington
I really appreciated all the layers that you put on…every one of us resonates with that, and the unwinding. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.
– – M. Hoven, Polarity Therapist, New Mexico
It was very moving. Coming from a performing background, and having seen a lot of polished work that doesn’t always move you… when it’s real, it’s very palpable. Thank you.
– Joule L’adara, Sounding Circles, New York
This is my life story!
