NOVEMBER 8TH AND 9TH, 2014 THE HAGUE SHOWTIME 19.30 HRS.
A passionate student and educator, Bowers studied with the legendary Marcel Marceau.
Today, the opportunity to make the ancient art form of mime accessible to a contemporary audience drives his professional artistry. Bowers is a mime who also talks, deftly interspersing narrative with stunning visual portraits. He marries classical aspects with contemporary sound effects and music, poses present-day considerations through physical tapestries, and invites a wholly transformative look at the humor, pain and beauty of our humanity through simplicity and grace.
Xaviera Hollander herself has, during the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, immensely enjoyed this excellent show, which has been hailed by New York Times as "the most talented American Mime of this generation"
IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING is an autobiographical solo play that takes the audience on a scenic tour of Bowers life and career, from growing up gay to outrageous survival jobs to the whirlwind of working on Broadway. In addition to the journey of becoming an artist IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING chronicles the experience of surviving the AIDS crisis in New York City and the silence that existed within his experience of caring for and losing his partner to AIDS.
"Brilliant writing, profound and riveting stories!"
"To watch Bill Bowers is to see the technical elements of a style that brings Marcel Marceau readily to mind, joined to the American West. Mime can be wonderful - the air between him and us is his palette."
