Circus Factory & Celebration Barn presents “Honeybuns” by Dean Evans at The Roundy
To close out weekend 1, we have Dean Evans from Los Angeles. A professional performer, writer, and director, they were named one of the top 50 'players' by New city magazine, and have performed with Second City, iO, the Goodman, and as a solo artist around the world.
"Honeybuns, billed as 'The World's Greatest Mime,' is a visceral and hilarious theatrical event. To share the room with the gigantic creature known simply as Honeybuns is to experience a highly physical, interactive piece of performance art that has impressions of mime, improv, and electro shock treatment.
It's a rare treat to see some world class Mime, so if you are an Art freak, an Alt Comedy Fan, or into physical theatre, then this is the show for you.
Dean is teaching a Mime Workshop at Circus Factory Sept 18th 2pm - 5pm.
