What is Cilla Vee?
"Cilla Vee – Life Arts" is a performing arts
organization that specializes in inter-disciplinary arts
inter-disciplinary performing arts organization that explores the
ways in which the arts can go beyond the anticipated format of a
"piece." Challenging the common concepts of venue, duration,
collaboration and audience relationship considered appropriate
while maintaining artistic integrity as priority over
Health, Knowledge and Spirit through Arts, Sciences and Sacred
Journey. This is a practical and essential recognition of the
holistic human. Body, Mind, Soul.

Barratt in the summer of 2002 in the South Bronx, NYC. A play on
