    What do sleight of hand, puppetry, slapstick, and contact juggling have in common? …the skills of a mime. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to (and practice) basic techniques such as muscle isolations, freezing, balance, misdirection, and making the invisible seen – all with the purpose of creating illusion.
