Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“After 9/11, I noticed that people were gravitating with gusto toward one another to converse, to consider, to listen and to discuss… There seemed to be a need for mutual exchange under standard light, without artifice or the separation of stage and audience… In this spirit, I began an initiative in SITI Company’s studio entitled Conversations with Anne.”
– from the Introduction by Anne Bogart
