"Thank you for creating a safe and inspiring environment for us to create and perform. That in itself is something that I appreciate very much, because at times it can be hard to let loose and participate or even feel comfortable. I thought the way we were able to connect as an ensemble so quickly and together was astonishing."  -Sebastian Ruiz (Smoke & Mirrors Co-Lab participant)
