Course Description: Mime/Pantomime is one of the oldest forms of human communication and is, at the same time, one of the most essential tools for stage expression. This class explores the history, theories, and practice of mime, pantomime and other physically-oriented/non-verbal performances of each era, with the consideration of their cultural, societal background and context.

Students also learn some modern mime techniques in concurrence with a solid theoretical background.
