I am the Arts Coordinator for PS/IS 41, an arts-based public school serving approximately 950 students from grades K through 8. Several years ago, our storytelling program morphed into a complete drama/theater arts program. Both music and dance components were added in the past two years. Most of our inner city students have never traveled beyond the city's borders or been exposed to a variety of art forms. Our goal is to expose the students to art forms that are not generally available to them. This year, we want to bring to our school a performance by a most unique artist, Hilby. Working in the tradition of the legendary silent vaudeville-inspired comedians (such as Buster Keaton) as well as the great mimes Marcel Marceau and Lecoq, Hilby presents a show without boundaries in which artist and anarchy are blended into utter hilarity. Hilby uses the medium of circus arts to deliver his unique form of entertainment that instantly connects with people of all ages. This connection expands artistic awareness and illustrates limitless artistic possibilities, which are critical to student artistic development in the early years.
