and a review of Poetic License from Literature Live in Mumbai Nov 2016-
"Batdorf mesmerises audiences at ... The Mumbai LitFest -Large crowds thronged ...to catch some of their favourite authors and experts on several riveting topics. In a performance that enthralled the audience, performer Erika Batdorf, single-handedly took them through her life by depicting three individual characters and their separate stories in a session called ‘Poetic License’.... Erika then...touched the audience’s hearts by delivering a heart-felt monologue where she addressed her daughters to not lose hope in life. This powerful performance challenged the audience to examine their desires in the context of eternity." NRINEWS
