The Grace Interviews
These are dictionary definitions of grace. One of the purposes of my project is to discover how grace is realized in peoples lives. How they go about finding it. Or maybe it hunts them down and finds them. How does it manifest? Obvious? Or totally disguised and minuet. Hysterically funny, absolutely ridiculous, dramatic or tender?
I have no clue. You tell me!

TALK ABOUT HEALING?
AUTHORS NOTE (Elizabeth Wunsch)
Faces of Grace began itís journey over five years ago. I had begun on a journey of healing and I wondered if others were experiencing the wild, phenomenal stuff that I had been. So I started asking questions. Interviews. And in the process of each interview, openings were created in the souls of the interviewee and myself. An experience that moved each of us forward to a new level. I wanted to recreate that on stage. Blow open a bunch of people all at once. Well, you get the idea. Working with the technique of Transformational Acting developed by Sande Shurin,
I knew it was possible for actors to have the actual experiences needed to create openings in theaudiences involved. Now, to take these interviews and my experiences and weave them into story!
The Journey begins.
