L/A Arts will wrap up its inaugural three-day extravaganza, Ice Fest L/A, with a free day of family fun on Sunday, February 24. Taking place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the day’s events will include marveling at the festival’s beautiful ice sculptures, taking in ice sculpture demonstrations, delighting in delicious treats provided by area eateries, and enjoying the physical comedy theatre of Michael Trautman.
Trautman started out in life as a fairly normal person. After growing up in Springfield, Illinois, he attended William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, where he studied Political Science with the intention of becoming a lawyer. But in 1976 he took his first mime class, and in 1977 he was invited to become a founding member of Mimeos, a Kansas City-based school and performing company. Since then, he has been having fun performing at venues around the world.
