Mikael Rudolph and "Swim Home" is back!

The FridgeFest site has information on a series of performances by Mikael Rudolph of his "Swim Home" show.

If you listen to my podcast, you might remember this episode where I interviewed Mikael and talked about the "history of mime" (among other things).

I can't believe that after months of not blogging, I'm back with, "Dude! You gotta go see this mime!" But, seriously, this is a remarkable performance and a really interesting study in non-verbal communication, personal interation... all sorts of good "instructional design" or "usability" stuff. (A slight stretch, but not by much.)

So, for my hip friends who can pop up to the Loring Playhouse on an afternoon (you know who you are!), you should check this out. Here's the update from the e-mail Mikael just sent out:
