Keren Moscovitch opens up about her new multidisciplinary project, “One More Way Files,” debuting this week at LABA, NYC! Keren writes:

“The way we tell stories and pass them between oral and written formats – is a collective erotic expression that works in concert with humankind’s intellectual and spiritual traditions.”
