Solo, duet and trio pieces will be shown to introduce the public to Austin's newest theatre company. Austin's newest company, Austin Mime Theatre, performs for one night only. Artistic Director Michael Lee and principals Amelia Turner and Kyle Connealy perform original solos and duet mime pieces, including "The Conversation" and "Remembrance," both critiqued by Marcel Marceau. The late French master spoke of Michael's work, "You have a distinct drama and strength...the calibre of my own company." The 75 minute performance will stretch far beyond what you might think of mime. "Pure comic genius" - Ann Arbor News
