Beyond Words

1hr. 15min.


Beyond Word a collection of Mime, Music, and Monologues: a poignant journey that continues Bowers' ongoing investigation of silence in our culture. Set against the backdrop of "Small town America," Beyond Words takes the audience on a funny and poignant journey of sound and silence. One of the most acclaimed mimes in America today, Bill Bowers' eloquent movement evokes the deepest truths of the human condition. Often compared to Chaplin and Keaton, Bowers has truly created a style all his own. Bowers is a student of world-renowned mime Marcel Marceau, and has performed and conducted workshops throughout the U.S, Europe and Asia. His acclaimed original shows have been produced Off-Broadway to critical raves. Bowers and Banta last collaborated on the critically acclaimed It Goes Without Saying at Rattlestick Theatre. The New York Times has said "To see Bill Bowers is to see the technical elements of a style that bring Marcel Marceau readily to mind. Mime can be wonderful…the air between him and us was his palette."
