Nonverbal Theatre….What?

As I mentioned previously, I’m in an ASL/Deaf Lit course and yesterday we talked about personification – how when signing a story the author can personify inanimate objects and express from its perspective.  We studied a troupe named  Mummenschanz.  They started in 1971 withe counter culture movement.  They used a lot of junk and made it into crazy props and costumes that emote without having to speak or be of the human form.

It was really fascinating.  I want to see more of that notion of expressing humanness without language or words and see what experimental forms can come of it.
