“I love Gulu and his method, I have been fortunate to have done a show with Gulu using his method and was blown away by it, I was inspired to help him facilitate his workshops so as many people as possible can experience for themselves, the nuanced character that appears with such ease. His work is incredibly transformative, he includes mask work, animal work and the elements (earth, fire, water, air and wood ) along with adjectives to bring the character alive within us. He is a very passionate and kind teacher and creates absolute joy around the work. Highly recommend.”
