Grange Hall Cultural Center presents Rob Mermin in “Adventures in Mime & Space: The Legacy of Marcel Marceau” Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. at 371 Howard Ave., Waterbury Center. In this tribute performance to the legendary French mimes Marcel Marceau and his teacher, Etienne Decroux, Mermin shares his memories of training with these great performance masters. Mermin, who’s the founder of Vermont’s Circus Smirkus as well as a director, actor, author and producer, explores the metaphors of mime technique and shows rare film clips of Marceau and Decroux teaching, bringing to life the essence of what Marceau called “the silent language of the soul.” The legacy of Marceau encompasses not only his virtuosity in mime, but also his work in the French Resistance saving Jewish children during WWII. Tickets are $17 advance or $20 at the door. 802-244-4168, grangehallcc@gmail.com, grangehallcc.com.
