What you'll do
You will begin by understanding the effort required to learn the simplicity of a walk on the spot. You will find yourself able to execute thanks to the magic of the point fix of the classic figures of the Art of Mime. And you will find yourself interpreting pantomimes once played by tutelary figures of our Art, such as Jean-Louis Barrault or Marcel Marceau. The pantomimes of the “Children of Paradise” will serve as a backdrop to confront a theatricality or only the gesture and king. An exchange with the teacher and artist at the end of the meeting will serve to put the Art of Mime into perspective in a historical and contemporary context.

My name is Ivan, and I’m the Educational and Artistic Co-Director of the International School of Dramatic Corporal Mime, Paris. I am today the master for the Art of Mime in Paris. It was in Paris, the birthplace of Mime, that I became the student and then the assistant of Etienne Decroux. I taught in various Mime schools, including 10 years at the Marcel Marceau School, at the National Circus School, at the Superior School of Dramatic Art in Paris, and as a speaker at the Louvre Museum, at the Center National du Théâtre CNT in Paris, Brussels, and Italy. So I became one of the essential personalities to learn about the Art of Mime in Paris. As a Mime Master, I also have a very important artistic career. This allows me to give a comprehensive and unmatched overview of the Art of Mime.
