About the Instructor


Mime Theatre Studio's workshops in Mime Theatre introduce some of the fundamental concepts and skills of the art.  Participants will take part in various exercises and explorations, and will learn new physical and dramatic skills.

This workshop is useful for those who wish to learn the basics of performing Mime as an autonomous theatre art form, as well as for those who wish to explore how Mime can enhance their work in other arts, such as acting for film/TV/stage, dance, storytelling, singing, improv, stand-up comedy, motion capture / performance capture, etc.  The instruction can be tailored to participants from young children to adults, and is excellent for theatre or dance companies, and drama or dance students, whether as general skill building or for work on a particular production.

Concepts covered are selected form the following:

  • Breath as a basis for physical life on stage

  • The origin point and path of movement

  • Isolations

  • Expressing the internal world (thought and emotion)

  • Physical relationship to the external world (this work includes illusion skills)

  • The physical character

Workshops can be conducted as a one-time event or as a series of several classes.  The minimum duration of a single meeting is one hour, although we highly recommend at least two hours at a time (especially for one-time workshops), as it can be difficult to cover a significant amount of material in less time.  The selection and number of concepts covered in your workshop will depend on the total number of hours allotted.
