Random Acts of Beauty present "The Tip of the Iceberg"
The year 2020. The very last glacier on earth is surrounded by tourists, entrepreneurs, refugee polar bears and Steve and Evelyn  two mutually antagonistic environmentalists. Suddenly the glacier calves and the two well-meaning souls find themselves trapped on an iceberg in the middle of the ocean. As the iceberg melts, the two are carried into strange regions, meet even stranger creatures and seek to overcome their own follies

What will the next decades bring? Will we be standing under water, or plagued with drought - or both? Can the ordinary western citizen manage to live an ordinary life without contributing to the final catastrophe? Is it wise to invest in Antarctic real estate?

These and other questions are posed by the new production of Theater R.A.B.  Random Acts of Beauty  a theatre company based in Freiburg, Germany. Franziska Braegger (CH) and Len Shirts (USA), the founding members of the mask and movement ensemble, will bring Tip of the Iceberg to California in the Fall of 2007. Together with director Ed Holmes (San Francisco Mime Troupe, St. Stupids Day Parade, etc.), the mask and movement theatre production is an entertaining contribution to the desperately needed paradigm change in society.

About the Company:
Theater R.A.B. produces original theatrical works speaking to the themes of the times through movement, music and the spoken word. The performers are at once actors, authors and designers of their shows. Nine productions for the conventional theater stage and dozens of smaller sketches and special performances in a magnitude of environments have had their premier since the beginning of the company in 1998: Park landscapes, castle ruins, thermal baths, subterranean cellars and even crypts have witnessed "Random Acts of Beauty."

Theater R.A.B. performance style blends elements of conventional acting, mask and movement theater, pantomime and music performance to create dramatic visual and acoustic poems, or light-hearted comic looks at mankind's ups and downs. The unique masks, designed and built in their own workshop, play a central role in most of the productions.
