Entertaining, Confusing, Great staging, Great acting, Funny

See it if you like mimes. Women animate well, classic-style. Not sexualized, not "updated" just pure classic stuff. Kids would like, too

Don't see it if you don't like silent physical comedy. Also, can get too surreal/confusing at times. Mostly makes sense.

Delightful, Original, Funny, Quirky, Sweet

See it if you enjoy miming and clowns. If you didn't think you could relate to a clown, you'd be surprised.

Don't see it if mime make-up scares you - or if you need dialogue to see a play.

Theatre is Easy
August 20th, 2016

"'BORN' does not try to make a grandiose claim of solving the 'hard problems' in life, or to intellectualize the existential questions the ensemble clearly makes continuous attempts to explore. Instead, these four clowns offer their vulnerability and perform in the most basic form of storytelling. It is refreshing to see something of so much depth conveyed with effortless simplicity."
