Nola Rae

Part of London International Mime Festival

Mimes – the cartoonists of theatre, illustrating ideas in as few moves as possible. Learn to illustrate your ideas in mimed movement in this fun class. Making the invisible visible, mime is the international art of imagination and storytelling.

Principal techniques are articulation (moving one part of the body at a time) and fixed point.

Nola Rae MBE guides you through fascinating techniques that can make a performer truly memorable. Trained at the Royal Ballet School and with Marcel Marceau, Nola is one of Europe’s most celebrated visual performers. She formed the London Mime Theatre in 1976, and has taken her shows to 68 countries to date.

This class is for the enthusiastic student of visual theatre performance, professional or amateur, who is reasonably fit and not afraid to move.
