The Islands Independent
Owl’s Dream show was quite a spectacle, very creative, colourful and moving.
It was aimed at kids (and the “young at heart”) but everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Half of the island seemed to be involved in some capacity, and Valentina incorporated dance, poetry, theatre, dream imagery, music, audience participation…It was quite impressive! At the end of the show she led the audience outside to see live butterflies being released and share a snack.

Valentina, you must be walking on air after putting on such a successful production of your book! The actors, the costumes, the poems, the love emanating from your heart – and your words. It all worked together to be a delightful time!
