edited with historical notes by Bari Rolfe

Click to order this title from

 
MIMES ON MIMING contains over sixty selections from the writings of famous mimes, theater people, dancers, choreographers, critics, historians and teachers. Ms. Rolfe traces the development of mime itself and its manifestations in theater, film and dance. Using the performers' own words, the book begins with ancient Greece and Rome and brings us to the present.

Mimes will find the art represented by Marceau, Chaplin, Lecoq, Dimitri, Keaton, Decroux and dozens more. Goslar, Weidman, Enters and Noverre are among the dance-mimes in these pages. Theater artists using mime extend from Gherardi and Zeami through the silent comedy films, Barrault, Dick Van Dyke and Woody Allen. All selections are set into an historical context that outlines the history of the art.

MIMES ON MIMING is a scholarly yet entertaining work and is a valuable addition to the literature of the performing arts.
