David Armand as "Johann Lippowitz" Mimes Natalie Imbruglia's Torn - Here's a fascinating and funny video performance of Torn by Natalie Imbruglia with mime/sign language assistance from David Armand (Johann Lippowitz). I was very impressed with how Natalie and Johann integrated their talents. Armand's Lippowitz character could have easily stolen the show, but Natalie managed to "get into the act." Excellent.
Note: I thought the direction or editing of this TV video piece was very poor. It missed a lot of what Johann was doing, and the interplay between Johann and Natalie needed more focus. This wasn't a conventional musical performance, and the editing/directing didn't adjust to that fact well.
