Yass Hakoshima Mime Theatre
World-touring Japanese mime artist Yass Hakoshima will perform two shows on Friday, April 15, in Hudson Valley Community College's Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium. The matinee begins at noon and the night show begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free.

Hakoshima will present a program that is a fusion of East and West – from hilarious, childlike dreams to thought-provoking dramatic themes.

Hakoshima has been performing since 1967. In 1981, he founded the New Jersey Center for Mime, the only professional mime institute in New Jersey, where dancers, actors and interested students are trained and educated in the art and techniques of mime and other related arts.

Founded in 1953, Hudson Valley Community College offers more than 60 degree and certificate programs in four academic divisions: Liberal Arts and Sciences; Engineering and Industrial Technologies; Health Sciences; and Business; as well as programs run through the Educational Opportunity Center offering certification programs in workforce and academic preparation. One of 30 community colleges in the State University of New York system, it has an enrollment of more than 12,000 students, and it is known as a leader in distance learning initiatives and worker retraining. Hudson Valley has nearly 60,000 alumni.
