Review for San Francisco Mime Troupe, San Francisco, CA, USA
I have been watching SF Mime Troupe productions (THEIR PLAYS ARE NOT SILENT, despite the name) in the parks of San Francisco for the last 30 years! I am never disappointed. I have been so enamored by their work that I sent my son to a program for public school students that they sponsored where he worked with other teens from a variety of schools in various neighborhoods to create, write and produce their own play. What a pleasure to watch students of all colors and backgrounds collaborating while producing their own creation!
I am especially impressed with how the Mime Troupe has managed to bridge chasms of race and class. Their cast is multi-racial and multi-national and respectful of gender identities. Their themes are universal. Their productions inspire action for building kinder, stronger communities and a better world. The Troupe is well worth supporting!
