Umbilical Brothers et Marcel Marceau, le mime

October 5th, 2007 · 6 Comments

Mastering mime and sound effects can bring an impressive sense of realism to our improvisations. And for that, I believe a good inspiration would be the Umbilical Brothers, who are truly masters in this category. Enjoy.

I could not end this post without mentionning of course the death of Marcel Marceau. This is a tragedy for the worldwide community of actors and performers. Chrisophe Tournier, in a tribute to him on his blog, pointed out two beautiful videos of him and his work. Many great actors and performers have recently left us. It feels as if they still had so much to teach us…

    Marcel Marceau was an incredible mime, here is a famous video performance: The tango dancer!
    Enjoy! :)
