“Mime Explains String Theory!” is an interactive performance with universal appeal. It touches elders, delights families, and tickles children. It’s a talking mime show, a serious comedy, a life-affirming story of the cycle of life. Full of magical surprises, whimsical humor, puppetry, metaphysics and metaphor, it reminds audiences of the spirit of love that connects us all, and leaves them with that rising feeling. It is ideal for small audiences and seniors.
