Review of iMime: There’s an App for That
by Laughing Nomads Productions
I came under an misapprehension: that what Kirsten was doing was an entire show based on what I’ve seen her do with the iPad at Ball’s Cabaret. That was just a part of this tremendous performance. What always unnerves me about mime is that when I miss a few physical cues – and I inevitably do – I get completely lost and can’t find my way back to understanding what is going on. Then I feel stupid. So it’s not that I don’t like mime – it’s that I don’t like me on mime. With Kirsten this happens much less for me, and I therefore have a fantabulous time. I do find it amusing that in a show with a technology theme, what I was most impressed with was the new use she taught me for masking tape. Now I can finally put away my Coin Operated Boy.
