Big Time Entertainment have a selection of Mime Artists available for events
Mime is generally considered the first form of expression before spoken language began all those years ago. It was typically used by primitive races to communicate. But instead of it disappearing from the face of the earth when spoken language began the Ancient Greeks turned it into a theatrical form at the Theatre of Dionysus in Athens where Theatrical Mime Began.
Centuries later when the Romans conquered Greece they took mime back to Italy where it was extremely successful under the Roman Emperor Augustus.
In the middle ages mime entertainment continued to be very popular throughout Italy
Mime Finally came to Paris at the beginning of the Eighteen Century and was first performed at the Funambules on the Boulevard Du Temple by Jean Gaspard Batiste Deburau. His continued at this theatre until his death creating the lovesick 'Pierrot', the eternal seeker, and had converted the crude slapstick of mime as it is known today.
After the second world war came Marcel Marceau who created his own special character 'Bip' who was a similar character to 'Pierrot'.
