This concert of Gateway’s signature solo and duo performance pieces has delighted audiences of all ages throughout North America and Europe, using remarkable masks and intricate costumes to bring enchanting stories to life.
Performer/percussionist Michael Hickey has created most of the masks to be unique to this theatrical company, along with his set designs. Pairing with Michael is Sandra Hughes, an award-winning writer, performer, director, choreographer, and flutist.

Together, these two create magic.
The use of masks in theatre goes back to the ancient Greeks, as does performance mime. Before there was spoken language, mime was used to communicate what primitive people needed or wanted. Instead of fading into obscurity when spoken language was developed, mime became a true theatrical form in ancient Greece. So Super Saturday will allow audiences to be steeped in the oldest of theatrical traditions.
