2017 Summer Reading: Build A Better World!

Build a Better World! Comic mime Robert Rivest entertains audiences of all ages while joyfully motivating them to build a better inner and outer world. Using mime, comedy, and interactive playfulness, Robert shares mindful ways that we can work together to build a brighter, kinder, future. This fun family show is full of audience participation! In addition to Robert’s humorous and inspirational mime stories on how to build a better world, everyone will learn cool mime movements, awesome laughter exercises and calming mindfulness activities. Together, we will act out exciting characters and stories highlighting the summer theme: Taking Care of the Earth and Each Other with Kindness.  We end with an interactive mime “poem” about the joys of reading and having fun at the library. Pure fun! Pure joy!


"I love programs that entertain parents as much as they do children, and Robert Rivest's show definitely accomplished that goal. His unique mixture of mime and comedy along with a strong pro-library message, completely engaged our diverse audience."

-Patty Falconer, Hampstead Public Library, NH

2. Teens: Building Better Friendships with character improv, mime and mindfulness.
