Silent, Yet Outspoken: SF's Mime Troupe Celebrates 50 Years

To describe something as simultaneously silent and outspoken seems an oxymoron, but that's what best defines the Tony Award-winning SF Mime Troupe. Now celebrating 50 years of performance art, "Engagement, Commitment and Fresh Air" at YBCA features archival photographs and video, musical recordings, props, costumes, scripts and other memorabilia documenting the company's colorful history. On January 15, check out Don Lenzer's look at the first decade of the company's shenanigans in the film Have You Heard of the San Francisco Mime Troupe?.
