‘An Evening of Mime’ offered Nov. 1 at NIU in DeKalb
Online Staff Report
DEKALB, Ill. — Families are invited to a free mime performance at 6 p.m., Nov. 1, in the Recital Hall of the Northern Illinois University Music Building on the DeKalb, Ill., campus. “An Evening of Mime” is a collection of stories that convey the comedy and drama in people, places and everyday objects through the movement of the body and facial expressions.
Performing are accomplished mime artists Eliot Monaco and Amanda Brown, who have performed and taught mime for a number of years throughout the Chicago area. Common to all their performances are their trademark humor, optimism and faith in the goodness of people.
The art of mime combines theater and story-telling and dates back to ancient Greece and Rome. Mime artists perform silently, using only movement to convey a range of emotions.
The performance is recommended for children ages 5 and older.
The NIU Community School of the Arts offers lessons (Suzuki and traditional), ensembles and classes in music, art and theater for children and adults. For more information about the community school, call (815) 753-1450 or visit www.csa.niu.edu.
