Wolfe Bowart To perform excerpts from ‘Cloud Soup’ in Rockport
CAMDEN — Physical comedian, actor, and playwright Wolfe Bowart will be performing excerpts of his new show, Cloud Soup, at 162 Russell Avenue, Rockport, on July 19 at 5 p.m.. The performance will be a benefit for Watershed School, Midcoast Maine’s only independent high school. Tickets will be available at the door for a suggested donation of $15 each.
Bowart is the creator and performer of the physical theatre productions LaLaLuna, Letter's End and The Man the Sea Saw. The son of writer Walter Bowart, and grandson of the abstract expressionist artist Edward Dugmore, Bowart spent much of his life at his grandfather’s studio in Washington, Maine. His work engages multi-generational audiences in theatrical experiences that evoke thought, wonder and laughter.
Influenced in part by Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin and Jacques Tati, Bowart’s one-man shows often include juggling, acrobatics, puppetry, magic, and film interactivity. “Physical comedy in a live environment is a special thing to be part of,” says Bowart. “These days, we could all use a good laugh.”
Bowart learned the circus arts from age nine and began performing as a teen. On gaining his classical training at Seattle’s Cornish College of the Arts (the specialist visual arts and performing arts university), Bowart furthered his studies with mentors as diverse as performance artist Rachel Rosenthal and members of Cirque du Soleil.
As a playwright, artist, and multidisciplinary performer, Wolfe Bowart’s work has been produced for the theatre in the U.S., Australia and in Europe.
