2022 Summer Reading Library Themes:

Oceans of Possibilities & Read Beyond the Beaten Path

Miming Oceans of Possibilities Robert Rivest is a Comic Mime. He sees the world in a very funny way. He is known as the 'human cartoon' because of his highly expressive face and flexible body. Using mime, comedy, and interactive stories, Robert brings original Ocean Themed stories to life before your eyes! He combines classic mime artistry with hilarious character voices and humorous insights into the oceans of positive possibilities in everyday life. Can you imagine your ocean story brought to life? In several audience participation opportunities, we will have fun improvising your story ideas. First, everyone will learn cool mime illusions! Then, we will act out the stories we create together on the spot! The joy we'll experience with movement, expression, creativity and laughter, is truly, beyond imagination.

Mime Outside the Box & Read Beyond the Beaten Path: Humorous adventures in camp, hiking, sports, performing arts and skill development. Can be a fun show by itself or part of a specific theme within the "Read Beyond the Beaten Path” Like Robert's "Science in Motion" Comic Mime Show for Science, Nature or Space Stem Events.

Summer Fun @ Your Library! This is a pure celebration of everything that we love about summer. Comic mime Robert Rivest performs his favorite stories about summer and invites audience members to join in. Stories about the sun, swimming, camping, travel, friendship, ice cream, late nights, lightening bugs and more! This fun family show is full of audience participation! In addition to Robert’s humorous and inspirational mime theater stories, everyone will learn amazing mime illusions and how to create their own mime story. Together, we will act out exciting characters and stories highlighting summer fun! Robert Rivest studied mime, dance, improvisation and acting in Paris and NYC. He brings over 20 joy filled years of experience to every performance.

Librarian and Library Staff, Stress: Relief Robert Rivest offers creative stress relief workshops, in-services and staff development training for librarians and staff! His most popular staff development program for libraries is part comic relief and part stress relief tips from mindfulness meditation, tai-chi and laughter yoga. The laughter and improv team building exercises are tons of fun! The take away stress relief tips are very effective for work in the library and every day life. It can be a great stress reliever for the whole population, a library conference keynote, worksop, breakout session or a special staff workshop/in-service/training.

Contact Robert today to discuss the best program for you.

All Robert Rivest Programs can be done In-person or Online.
