explores the fabulously varied shapes and moods of which we humans are capable. Through a series of mutable layered masks, Fintushel explores body language, the mysterious relation between shapes and moods, and how humans understand those signals at a glance. His demonstration of illusionary mime techniques, audience exercises (both raucous and quiet) and theatrical clowning brings home the lesson of communication through posture and gesture.
