About Alithea Mime Theatre:
Fusion. Integration. Organic. Individual personal voice evolves from the myriad of experiences that sculpts the artistic aesthetic when creating work at any moment. The Alithea Mime Theatre is a company committed to a continuing vision of mime theatre as a single discipline and multidiscipline with an emphasis on group choreography. After accepting the invitation to co-find the Goldston School for Mime while engaging in parallel training in dance, Johnson established an artistic identity in the mime theatre with a talent for company choreography. In 1994, Johnson, with Sabrina Vasquez as associate artistic director, established the Alithea Mime Theatre and embarked on a creative journey that continues today. In 1999, Alithea became a professional company in residence at Wichita State University. Now in 2024 Zoe Johnson joins the company, continuing the work as co-artistic director and company manager. https://alitheacreations.com/
