“Very touching, while humorous.”


“Wonderful, I loved the wonder of exploring a life and history in Shepherds and the humour.”


“Powerful, painful, funny journey. Maria you are one clever, talented, honest woman. It was the most powerful, soft, light and then “Hard Punch” of pain repeated again and again, so craftfully performed.”




“It is the most powerful performance – so moving – an absolute gem, if such a term can be used for something so devastating. Simplicity masking amazing depth.”


‘The Importance of Shepherds’ was made possible thanks to support from Kerry County Council and Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company.
