MIME OVER MATTER!

Come explore basic mime techniques—visualization, articulation of gesture, creative use of imagery and space— with mime, Rob Mermin, as a method for coping with PD movement limitations in daily activity. Rob founded the award-winning Circus Smirkus and Parkinson’s Performance Troupe. His tactics use fun, circus games, and props to improve coordination, postural awareness, and development of reflexes. Come join the fun!
