“Miracles” in the Making

The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s Department of Theatre + Dance is proud to open its 2017-2018 Late Night series with Mimes, Masks, and Miracles, directed by master mime Todd Farley. Performances will take place September 15, 16, 22, and 23 at 11pm in the Earle Ernst Lab Theatre at the Kennedy Theatre facility.

Mimes, Masks, and Miracles showcases the rarely seen art of French mime. In this limited engagement, the world-renowned tradition of Marcel Marceau will be brought back to the stage by his master student, Todd Farley. Farley will be presenting two recreations of his master’s works, “The Hands” and “The Mask Maker,” which Farley learned from Marceau during his training with the artist in Paris, France. Joining Farley will be theatre and dance students from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa who will perform pieces of Farley’s original mimeography in stories drawn from around the world. The performance includes various styles of physical theatre, mime, blacklight theatre, and puppetry. Mimes, Masks, and Miracles has something meaningful for audiences of all ages, as this style of performance moves its viewers beyond the world of illusionary mime and engages them in the storied wonder and visual delight unique to this mode of theatrical storytelling.

Tickets for Mimes, Masks, and Miracles will go on sale at the Kennedy Theatre Box Office one hour prior to the start of each show.
