Master American Mime and Movement Artist takes us on a journey through rhythms and musical storytelling. James Donlon has performed his celebrated original mime work in Europe, North America and Latin America since 1970. The New York Times describes his shows as “An extraordinary blend of skill and lunacy.” His athletic style explores the state of dreams, social commentary and surreal worlds. James has been a movement coach for Oscar winners Javier Bardem, Kathy Bates and Frances McDormand. He is a master teacher in many of the world’s most important theater conservatories.
