Dzieci Para-theatrical Workshop Testimonials:

"I want to thank you for the devastating, torturous,
sublime and transcendent experience that was Maraton.
It was a great relief to forget conceptions of myself for a night and to
interact among perfect strangers without using normal human speech.
It produced in me a feeling that is quite rare and precious in life."
Jonathan Barsness, Maraton '08

"My experience totally defies words..."
Lisa Lerner, The Thunder, Perfect Mind

"It melted me, humbled me, destroyed my ego and pride,
ripped my heart open, and changed me forever."
Krystyna Sanderson, The Hero's Journey

"What is indelibly writ in my memory and experience are the shining faces,
the luminous spirits and the utter equality that characterized the members
of the group. I had a feeling of one common soul in which all participated.
It was quite extraordinary to get that sense of community.
It sharply contrasts with almost every way we relate in our society.
I thank you, Matt, and everyone who made Maraton such a full, magical,
loving and healing 24 hours -- not to be forgotten by me ever."
Linda Rapuano, Maraton '09

"Inspiring work, excellent execution."
"Wonderful non-verbal end to the conference."
"Fucking brilliant!"

"Please accept my deepest gratitude. Just for the opportunity to spend
24 hours shedding my long held anxieties, doubts and cynicism was priceless.
You were so generous with your hearts, energy, focus, passion and more."
Reiko Aylesworth, Maraton '07

"I did things I was sure I would not be able to do and went places,
despite my resistance, that were healing for me to go to.
I am grateful for the experience!"
Elda Luisi, Maraton '09

"Truly one of the most amazing things I've experienced as a person or actress.
Today, I found myself feeling unafraid to take risks no matter where I was.
The normal daily fears of people and places occurred, but the filter
to which I would adjust my voice and behavior seemed to have gone away.
I only hope others can fully realize themselves as I have."
Judy Mair, Maraton '07

"My God what an awesome and profound experience!"
Mark Sklawer, Maraton '07
