Wow! The response has been amazing, huge thanks to everyone who watched, tweeted, facebooked and emailed their kind words. It was quite emotional, this piece about my grandparents is obviously close to my heart, and it means a lot to hear that you guys enjoyed watching it too.
If you missed my performance of #shlomobellydancer on Channel 4′s Random Acts last night, you can watch it again here.
And massive thanks to Chris and everyone at Visual Influence for capturing the piece so well. You guys ROCK. BIG LOVE x
