For Trevor Copp, Artistic Director of Burlington’s Tottering Biped theatre, mime, or physical theatre as he sometimes terms it, has been a fascination. So much so that after college Trevor took a crash course in mime at the Marcel Marceau School in Paris. Trevor honed his art with some street busking in Hamilton and Burlington. Over the past few years Trevor has performed in various venues across Canada, and now brings his show “Air,” directed by Robin Patterson, to the Burlington Performing Arts Centre January 21 to the 23rd.
Air has played to rave reviews at the Hamilton Fringe Festival as well as in Ottawa and St. Catharine’s. “it’s an opportunity to re-imagine and revitalize mime in Canada says,” Copp, noting that mime troupes used to be commonplace in Canada in the 1980’s but fell on hard times as funding for the arts was cut back.
Air—a mixture of music and mime provides what Trevor Copp calls “meditations on interconnectedness.” For tickets http://www.burlingtonpac.ca/
