Mime the Gap: Techniques in Mime and Movement explores the physicality of movement in storytelling, offering new ideas about acting and performance, whilst encouraging a contemporary resurgence of this traditional performance art. With detailed, step-by-step instructions of basic to advanced mime illusions, the book addresses the key areas of physicality, including when to move and when not to move, making the invisible 'visible' and the fundamental principles of physical articulation.

Additional topics include:

  • How to use the elements of Fire, Earth, Water and Air for physical characterization
  • Techniques for performing classic mime routines, such as the Glass Box and the Moonwalk
  • How to mime with props and objects, both visible and invisible
  • Using breath, posture and gesture to enhance performance and perceptions
  • Creating and producing an authentic performance
  • How to teach basic mime
