Burlington-based Theatre Kavanah, along with Temple Sinai and Ohavi Zedek Synagogue, presents "Adventures in Mime and Space: The Legacy of Marcel Marceau with Rob Mermin" for one night only at North End Studios this Sunday, September 28, at 7 p.m. Perhaps best known in Vermont as the founder of Circus Smirkus, Montpelier-based Mermin trained in Europe as a clown and with renowned pantomime artists Marceau and Etienne Decroux. Mermin draws on 40 years of experience performing in circuses, theater, television and film; he's also an author, lecturer and former dean of Ringling Bros. Clown College. Tickets to his presentation cost $18, available at theatrekavanah.org or at the door.
To register for Mermin's workshop, 3-5 p.m. on Sunday, check the website or call 503-1132.
