For three decades, Doug Berky has brought classic solo physical theater performances to stages all over the world. Using the illusion of the mime, the antics of the clown, the transformation of his own handmade, original masks, the suspense of a good story and the excitement of improv, Doug inspires both laughter and reflection. A graduate of Dell’Arte School of Physical Theatre in CA, Berky has performed and taught as Artist-in-Residence at the Commedia School in Denmark and numerous universities. He toured with The Two Penny Circus and The Montanaro Mime Theatre where he appeared in the award-winning NBC children’s series, “See Saw,” and in television specials for Swedish National TV. Doug has given literally thousands of performances. His unique and whimsical mask creations have inspired young mask makers in schools, ballet companies, and theaters from Stockholm to Seattle. Currently Artist in Residence at Furman University, Doug regularly tours North America and is available for K- 8th and family performances, as well as student and adult workshops, keynotes, master classes and residencies in mask theatre, mask design and construction, mime and movement, and the role of humor in health and healing.
