BWW REVIEW: Broken Box Mime Theater Explores The Fragility of Contemporary Life in SKIN BWW REVIEW: Broken Box Mime Theater Explores The Fragility of Contemporary Life in SKIN 
by Victoria Ordin - Feb 4, 2019

Nearly two years after an impressive debut at the Jeffrey and Paula Gural Theater at A.R.T, Broken Box Mime Theater is back with SKIN, a collection of fifteen short pieces which alternate between the playful and the political. In Reverse (which dazzled this reviewer), consisted of just ten pieces. These physical storytellers, who come from diverse performing arts backgrounds (none of which, remarkably, include dance) have a palpable bond, perhaps because they communicate outside the sphere of language. Acting depends upon listening, but in mime, the 'listening' takes a more visceral and amorphous form. This accounts, I think, for the intimacy one witnesses in BXBR. It's easy for mime to miss the mark, at least if one associates meaning with hitting one's marks. These performers must trust each other to help make each action intelligible. Meaning itself, one might say, is collaborative. There is much to admire in Skin, and under Becky Baumwoll's direction, the performers continue to amaze with their ability to convey such depth and precision of feeling with recourse only to facial expressions and body language.
