Mark Jaster

Mark Jaster trained with twentieth-century masters Marcel Marceau and Etienne Decroux.

He performs three distinct solo shows:
Piccolo’s Trunk, A Fool Named ‘O’, and The Maestro.
His work combines live music on unusual instruments and non-instruments, outrageous acrobatics, and hyper-advanced communication skills with honest, gentle humor and playful interaction, obliterating many a skeptic’s antipathy toward mime. The Washington Post called him “clown extraordinaire and one of the most graceful performers you will ever see on a stage.”
