About Beyond Words: What is a Boy? In a visual poetical world, Bill Bowers grows from boy to man exploring maleness, and how culture informs gender. One of the most acclaimed multidisciplinary artists in America today, Bill Bowers employs an eloquent mixture of music, monologues and mime to create a vibrant montage of stories that is Beyond Words. Often compared to Chaplin and Keaton, he has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia. For Beyond Words, Bowers draws his characters from life and moves beyond mere anecdotes to create a vibrant and visual poetry. With audacity and compassion he explores what it means to be a boy and the messages we receive on our way to becoming men.
As an actor and a mime, Bill Bowers has appeared on Broadway as Zazu in Disney’s The Lion King, and as Leggett in The Scarlet Pimpernel. His original shows, It Goes Without Saying, Night Sweetheart, Night Buttercup, and Under a Montana Moon have been produced Off Broadway and received critical raves. Margo Jefferson of The New York Times writes: “To see Bill Bowers is to see the technical elements of a style that bring Marcel Marceau readily to mind. Mime can be wonderful…the air between him and us was his palette.”
