Odyssey of the Mime
Enter the mysterious, silent world of mime with David Zucker. David makes each traditional mime performance unique by creating an environment that allows for improvisational interplay with his audience. It contains spontaneity and spirit, as well as a curriculum-based focus. Students also enjoy added material on mime training and history and its relationship to poetry.

Teachers should play an active role in ensuring appropriate audience behavior and are requested to sit with their classes. Teachers are further requested not to correct papers during the program. It is distracting to the performers and, we believe, gives students the wrong message about audience courtesy.
Please introduce the performer as a Young Audiences of Massachusetts artist.
