Mime is the universal language of the world, the foundation that forms the basis of learning in all cultures around the world. Whether it is used in day to day life or for performances on stage, mime becomes easily accessible for everyone, anywhere. The essence of Performance Mime specialises in using the techniques of illusionary & emotive mime to create compelling stories by using the physicality of one’s own body.

I have received many emails stating that people would like to learn about the techniques of illusionary mime. The problem that is faced here, is that there are in actual fact very few quality illusionary Mime Workshops, courses or teachers of high standard that still teach in the UK today. To get the full benefit of Illusionary Mime, the teaching needs to go beyond simple basic mime techniques and to think in terms of how to apply the skills effectively in performance or for non-verbal communication and in every day life.

On the day I will be working with a body alignment expert to offer one to one
training so as to complement and enhance the overall learning experience…

Is the workshop open to anyone?
