Quotes 

Art gives voice to so many other things that would otherwise remain quiet. 

Every time something painful happens it tests your loyalty to yourself

For me watching pain turn into poetry is the biggest high – Reema

When you’re an actor you’re the instrument that communicates the story 

You don’t want to tell the story, you want to feel the story. 

All art is an act of intimacy and vulnerability.
