Pantomimteatern (Sweden)

Teach the infinite potential of wordless communication – and introduce students to the legacy of cinema’s greatest clown—with this award-winning theater work by one of Sweden’s leading children’s companies, based on Charlie Chaplin’s 1921 silent classic The Kid. Blending classic theater techniques with technological innovation, Pantomimteatern uses mime, half-mask, music, film projection, and an endlessly inventive set to channel Chaplin’s limitless creativity.
