Quadra Cultural Committee
Sunday, 24 February, 2:30 pm Dianna David, mime artist, dancer and juggling storyteller will present her magical performance of "Meena Myna, the Mime Magician" followed by a mime, dance, and juggling workshop for kids and adults alike. Supported by the generosity of a community member this afternoon will be offered to families "by donation." Adults $10 at the door at QCC.

Blending the comical qualities of a Charlie Chaplin with the mime techniques of a Marcel Marceau and the smooth moves of a Michael Jackson, Dianna David’s movement and storytelling act and workshop will surprise and engage all ages: kids, youth, adults and “mature” adults. The afternoon will include two distinct parts: a 45-minute performance as Dianna presents one of her characters, “Meena Myna the Mime Magician,” a charming and dazzling display of her fascinating ability to move like a panther as she controls props and tells story through mime; and following a short intermission, a 60-minute fun workshop which will include mime, dance and contact juggling, no experience required. This hour is open to any interested audience members, and we will clear an area of the floor and provide space for participation or chairs for watching. We are expecting lots of interest from young people especially.
