Drag Heals Creator, Writing Coach, Acting Coach
I came to SOULO with my dukes up, a real know-it-all. Tracey grabbed my heart so quickly. After the first three hours I was giggling and bouncing around like a kid. I was free to tell my story and it felt F&%KING GREAT. I recommend it not just to performers, but to all humans.
Christopher Sawchyn - Actor/ Playwright
For the first part of the theatre workshop I tried to hide who I was and what I needed and wanted to say behind a lot of intellectualizing, theorizing, and bullshit. I didn’t necessarily do this on purpose. But no matter; it wasn’t going to work. Tracey has the gift of insight. As in, she’ll see right into your center, and in the most gentle and tough way, bring something out of you that is vulnerable, and strong, and exquisitely beautiful. I am not finished this unfolding. Tracey got me started. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.
Dr. Richard Douglass-Chin
Tracey Erin Smith is extraordinary––a trustworthy, compassionate, and enthusiastic midwife for every participant's truth. Both our shadows and our brilliance. A powerful, wise and funny dimension of myself came up from the depths, out of the shadows, onto the stage and into the rest of my life. Tracey is a most generous-spirited, truly original and creative human being.”
Oriane Lee Johnston, former program director at Hollyhock Leadership Centre
This course has changed my life. I finally know why I’m here on this crazy earth. To tell my story. The SOULOTheatre class showing was the first time in my entire acting career that I felt people have seen the real me. My friends were stunned, and so thrilled for all of us. I learned so much about myself and am so grateful to have shared my experiences with a group of such wonderful, powerful women! Let the inspiration run rampant!
Mckenzi Scott - Actor/ Playwright/ Musician
I came into the class feeling skeptical that my story would be of any interest to anyone but myself. What I found was a wonderful group of people who validated my life’s narrative and helped me to give my story value through the creation of my 10 minute piece. This workshop is guided by a woman with enough wisdom, depth and personal experience to boundlessly lead all of us down the rabbit holes of our inner souls.
