The Next Performance

NOVEMBER 3, 4 & 5, 2017


After a successful World Premiere last May, a number of people asked to see the production again. We have added a few new ideas to this special look at life around a park bench. The idea for this stage production came for a series of films created while in Paris in 2016. Come see what a simple bench can create:


Friday, November 3, 2017 @ 7:00pm

T. Daniel and Laurie Willets

Founders & Artistic Directors

T. DANIEL & LAURIE WILLETS are internationally-acclaimed Mime and Theatre artist. They studied Theatre at Illinois State University and then they both studied Mime with Marcel Marceau and Etienne Decroux, Father of Modern Mime. Together, they have toured the world with 12 original, full-stage Mime productions. They have also performed with major international orchestras and ensembles. As Artistic Directors of T. Daniel Productions, nfp, they re-created Jean Cocteau’s 1920 pantomime farce, Le Boeuf sur le Toit, with Darius Milhaud’s four-hand piano version. (This was two world premieres, the four-hand piano version with the pantomime and the first professional Mime company to perform the pantomime.) They wrote, directed and performed a new pantomime for the American Premiere of Kurt Weill’s lost work, Magical Night, with Maestro James Conlon conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival.
