Mark Thompson Collaboration

0.00

CSA PGH collaborated with actor and movement specialist MARK C. THOMPSON. We decided to create a simple mime kit to be activated by Mark in two performances during the pop-up shop. The object itself is a vacuum-formed packaging designed by CSA and Thompson for a fictional company, Mime Stuff, Inc. It holds an invisible, old-fashioned can opener with disclaimers like “The first mime can opener and the last mime can opener that you’ll ever need.” and “Mime stuff products should not be ingested as they may become lodged in the esophagus and cause imaginary choking and in some extreme cases even death.”
