Paperback  |  Hardcover

 
For more than 40 years, Tony Montanaro has been a celebrated mime, at the top of his field. And for the past 20 years, Montanaro has shared his insights and skills as mentor to hundreds of performers.

At last, here's Tony's book, a book for all performing artists (not just mimes) -actors, musicians, dancers, poets....

To Tony Montanaro, mime is "eloquent gesture," with or without words, with or without props. Montanaro's approach is more than an invaluable lesson in theatre; it's a lesson in communication. Knowing what you want to project, sensing what the audience sees, and developing the skill necessary to bring the two together with eloquence and personal style are the goals of
Mime Spoken Here.

Mime Spoken Here covers such subjects as premise work, isolation exercises and illusions, character work, preparatory exercises, improvisation, sketches, and performance subtleties. Here's a guide to understanding just what makes a performance "work," and how a synthesis of artistry and technique can be achieved by individual performers and by a group. Tony and his wife Karen, a ballet dancer and mime, will show you how to put movement and gesture to work for you. This book is invaluable for anyone interested in what makes a performance successful, believable, impressive, interesting, and entertaining.
