Michael Cooper, Virtuoso Mime and Visual Artist, Brings His Family Friendly Masked Marvels and Wondertales to Capitol Center for the Arts

CONCORD, NH: A high-kicking giant. A clumsy cowpoke. A grumpy, pipe-smoking trout fishing beside an imaginary stream. Welcome to Masked Marvels & Wondertales, the eye-popping one-man variety show by Michael Cooper, the virtuoso storyteller, mask-maker and mime. On January 26, Cooper will bring his colorful cast of characters to Concord for two performances at 1pm and 4pm as part of the Capitol Center for the Arts' Showtime Sundays series.
Combining the mythical and the autobiographical, Cooper employs astonishingly detailed masks as well as impressive physical dexterity to tell original stories that highlight the presence of the miraculous in everyday occurrences. Vignettes include "The Baby," inspired by the birth of Cooper's first child; "The Horse," which pays homage to his father, a veterinarian who courted Cooper's mother on horseback; and "Fish-or-Man," in which he asks the audience "How do you think a fish would feel... if he were the one winding the reel?"
But the stars of the show are Cooper's exquisite masks, each of which can take up to 300 hours to make. Working primarily with scavenged materials, Cooper begins by ripping paper bags or old cloth into small pieces that are then dipped into glue and laminated over a carefully crafted clay sculpture.
