From The Physical Theatre Conservatory at Flying Actor Studio, San Francisco
Mime is among the most ancient theatre arts: through pure movement and imagination, entire worlds - realistic and fantastical - are birthed onstage. Participants of this workshop (actors, movers, performers, and artists of all stripes) will experience an initiation into the world of seeing and creating through movement; skills which, with time and dedication, will distinguish them as theater artists capable of embodied and dynamic creative contributions onstage and in rehearsal. On its own, or incorporated with other performance art forms, mime technique can contribute to the development of original and profound works of theatre.
