Why Mime?

Mimes are like blank canvases that tell stories and it allows the audience to paint their own experiences onto stage. The universal language that mime tries to find...

When did you first encounter/learn about mime?

My Grandma has a poster of the famous Swiss mime/clown in her basement and it scared and fascinated me at the same as a child. I would make her go downstairs with me and turn on the light to see whether he was still on the poster or had taken real life shape.

How did you find Broken Box Mime Theater?

Actors Access, say what?!

If you had a solo mime piece about your life, what would it be called and why?

Single Soldier, though I find myself in groups, they often are so different that i feel like I am moving on my own.

My favorite and most visceral moment happened when I walked into an Indian restaurant on Belmont in Chicago and the kind Indian host enthusiastically screamed as I was still in the doorway, "You look like Audrey Hepburn" :)

What story does your family always tell about you?

When I was 5 years old I stayed with family friends in New Jersey and my mom called from Switzerland and I told her that I couldn't talk because I was too busy selling lemonade on the street, "Ok, bye Mama"
