What is a Mime?

A mime is an actor who plays silent roles. In short, the mime uses attitude and gesture – without the use of speech – as a means of expression.
The mime tells an evocative story, interpreted by the imagination of the viewer who receives it. 

The word “mime” is borrowed from the Latin term “mimus” > “low-class player”and “theatrical farce ” and from the Greek term μίμος > “jester actor” and ” kind of comedy” . The term “pantomime” is borrowed from the Latin term “pantomimus” > mime/actor expressing himself/herself through gestures and from the greek term  “παντομίμας” >  “one that mimics everything.” =)

Charlie Chaplin and Marcel Marceau (known as “Mime Marceau”) are to me the most famous and best mimes ever known! If you’ve never seen them, you’re missing out! They’re hilarious and very touching!
