Keith Berger adheres to no one “doctrine” of physical theatre. His influences range from the classical French Pantomime of Barrault and Marceau to the forcefully dynamic American Mime Theatre style. Keith was among the very first performers to take his act on to the streets of New York City and was named by Joseph Papp the city’s “Most Outstanding Street Performer”. Since then he has toured his one-man show throughout the United States and Europe. Among these concerts are featured performances at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, The Palm Beach Arts Festival and a Royal Command Performance for Princess Grace of Monaco. Some of his T.V. and film credits include Red Skelton’s “Funny Faces”, “Crossover Dreams”, “Angel Heart”, “The Suicide Club” and a starring role on CBS’ “Space Rangers”. Off-Broadway, Keith wrote and starred in “Broken Toys”.
A gifted teacher, Keith has taught workshops and master classes in Physical Theatre and Mime throughout the U.S., including at Cornell University, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Disney Animation Studios, and at hundreds of elementary schools throughout Southern California.
