Channeling Marcel Marceau

We are currently experiencing a prolonged period of snow and extreme cold and wind, though In Cleveland the snowfall has been a couple of inches every other day or so and not the massive snowstorms that have hit other parts of the northeast. But it was bad enough that driving required considerable caution.

This video of Mike Warner of Oregon trying to climb stairs in 90 mph wind reminds me of the old ‘walking into the wind’ mime classic.

    When I was a kid (1969?), I saw a tent performance by Marceau, down in a rural part of southern France. We were completely transfixed, mesmerized.

    I don’t understand why it’s hip to make fun of mimes. It’s a really cool art-form.

    I met a guy who had taken a course on mime with Marceau. He said that the guy simply would not stop talking!
