The great French mime performer, Claude Kipnis, reveals the mechanisms and techniques of mime in an easy-to-understand translation. This theatre book is not a theoretical "art of" book, but a functional "how to" and "why to" instructional guide. Individual exercises are included together with detailed coverage of body movements, the illusion, and how to create a world. We know of no other book that so comprehensively explains how the functions of mime are achieved. Certainly a basic text for any aspiring mime.
