Parker Matthews is exactly one half of the Beyond the Glass Box mime duo. He and Beau Chevassus began performing together in 2008 while attending Whitworth University together. Since then, the BGB mimes have been seen on stages and streets across Oregon, Washington, and Montana. BGB has performed in a large variety of venues, from 4’X4′ stages to elite skyscraper clubs to city-wide festivals.
Matthews and Chevassus perform either solo or together as Beyond the Glass Box. Their style draws on their training in improvisation and physical acting (Meyerhold, Laban, and Chekhovian techniques). In addition to performing, BGB has taught school and festival workshops, and both private and group lessons.
