Don McLeod’s Living Statues & Zen Butoh Performers
The Tableau Vivant, or group of living statues, was a regular feature of medieval and Renaissance festivities and pageantry. Typically a group enacting a scene would be mounted on an elaborate stand decorated to look like a monument, placed on the route of the procession.
Don McLeod is an internationally acclaimed mime and movement artist. Just out of theatre school, Don was selected as a private student of the late Marcel Marceau. McLeod has toured throughout the U.S. and many foreign countries including numerous trips to Japan, Canada, India, Brazil, Argentina and most recently South Korea. Each performer in Don McLeod’s troupe has been trained in mime and Japanese Butoh (a form of slow-motion movement and expression) to bring the statues to life.
