AUDIENCE FEEDBACK

Simple but powerful

 

Beautiful, lyrical journey

A must see for any fan of 'spoken word'

Wonderful weaving of the epic and personal

Thought provoking. Evocative. Highly recommended!

This is a sophisticated storytelling piece… Great solo performance

Rajan is stunning to watch as he fills the lovely space with his presence.

His storytelling was compelling and vivid

Took me back to a memorable trip I went on with a school mate and my dad...

...superb storyteller...had the audience spellbound with minimal props and made them all want to follow the mariner's call...
