A collective portrait of the San Francisco Mime Troupe, a unique American repertory company, whose history reflects 25 years of social protest in America.
The Mime Troupe is not a silent pantomime theatre. Rather, their performance style integrates comedy, drama, satire, music, song and dance, all of which are underscored by their fierce commitment to social change.
TROUPERS takes the audience into the Mime Troupe's history beginning with their avant-garde work in the 1960's San Francisco "counter-culture" up to the present with an intimate look at the contemporary Troupe behind the scenes and on tour.
After more than 25 years, the San Francisco Mime Troupe is the most outspoken theatre company in America.
