Mime is essential for the modern theatermaker’s toolbox, and in this workshop, you’ll tap into your body’s full potential for storytelling and improvisation. Through a disciplined and playful approach you’ll hone skills to create characters, build environments, and explore illusion.

Become a more embodied performer. Gain the skills necessary to be a visual storyteller. Improve your physical comedy skills ,and learn an economy of movement to build a foundation of full body dynamic movement

Informed by Evans’s own career as a mime, clown, and actor, the workshop also draws on the techniques of Marcel Marceau, Etienne Decroux, Stefan Niedzialkovski, and the unique style of American mime.

Core to the workshop is the use of writing structures to compose original performance pieces. By combining exercise in technique with composition, you will learn to create moving visual poetry and supercharge your acting, clowning, and much more.

Dean Evans will also be performing on September 17th at the Roundy as a Honeybuns, a giant creature billed as ‘The World’s Greatest Mime‘.
