solo theater pieces range from four minutes sketches to full evening clown-theater plays.

BODY TALK – Our bodies speak. Every facial expression, every gesture, every little
movement is a statement. BODY TALK teaches you how to understand what you and
other people are saying without words. Michael Trautman's forty years of studying
Movement has given him special insight into how we speak with our bodies. In BODY
TALK Michael shares his secrets through lecture and demonstration. This highly
entertaining presentation will open the eyes of students and teachers alike to the language
that we all share and can already speak without even knowing it!
