In an effort to fulfill its mission of bringing mime back to a relevant, respected place in culture and media, Broken Box Mime Theater has put together a series of workshops for everyone, young and old, to share in this art form and discover how the principles of mime technique and strong, dynamic storytelling are applicable in a variety of settings.
Mime Technique and Physical Storytelling
Broken Box facilitates dynamic workshops in physical storytelling and object work. Ideal for casts or groups of 5-20 people, we offer instruction in physical character development, muscle isolation and control, establishing clear environment, and mimed story-telling. Our physical technique workshops include instruction for manipulating invisible objects and interacting with a mimed environment, as well as building strong character in the face and body. Our physical story-telling workshops focus on developing a mimed story – establishing clear narrative arc and detail without the use of props, costumes, or language. These workshops can be offered separately or combined as a single intensive.
Our kids’ workshops are offered for children aged 8-18, and include instruction in mime technique, physical character development, and storytelling. Broken Box facilitators use a range of games and exercises to strengthen performance and physical communication skills, and then use these tools to guide children into crafting an original story through a collaborative process. Through mime, children explore a world where anything is possible – the challenge is showing what’s happening with only your body!
