About the Artist:
Kerrigan’s residencies create a safe space to open up our senses so we can attend to each other and bridge artificial gaps we call difference–race, class, sex, culture, etc.–and connect on a simple, deep level. She teaches courses in “Collaborative Creative Process,” and “Community-Based Performance for Social Change.” The courses are founded on peaceful communication principles. She works with K-12, college, grad, professional performers, and community members to carve out spaces where trust, collaboration, and creativity can abound. Her show for children is fun and educational; her show for adults is moving and uplifting.
- Mime Explains String Theory, or Mime Explains Life and Death, for adults: a talking mime show and a serious comedy with magical surprises, puppetry, audience interaction, and metaphysics. It reminds audiences that we are all connected by love, and leaves them laughing and crying.
- In The Mime Who Talks! for children, the mime juggles, drops, and talks about how failure is part of achieving success, and how to set a positive frame of mind to succeed. She does a lecture-demonstration about mime, and silent mime.
- Residencies: mime, movement for actors, collaborative creative process, creating original performance, integrating drama with curricula.
