T. Daniel Productions

Artist / Program Description: 
T. Daniel Productions is founded upon the talents and creativity of internationally-acclaimed physical theater artists T. Daniel and Laurie Willets, who create and perform innovative mime of the highest caliber. Since the beginning of their careers, their theatrical stage productions and classical music concerts have toured worldwide.

Hailed by critics as two of the world's “Master Mimes”, Daniel and Willets bring stellar qualities to their exceptional theatrical works and performances, mesmerizing audiences and renewing their love of this ancient art.

TDP was the first mime company to produce Jean Cocteau's pantomime farce play Le Boeuf sur le Toit with Darius Milhaud’s music. Using oversized headmasks and exquisite character pantomime, this touring production displays Daniel’s and Willets’ mesmerizing style.

The duo also performs with orchestras, chamber ensembles, and in their interdisciplinary collaborative project, INnOvaTionS, in the hopes of bringing music to the ear… and the eye.

Along with offering master classes and workshops, TDP also works with local communities, providing their productions for families, music lovers, and general audiences.
