Miming in Silence

marcelmarceau

 

Perhaps we can ask Marcel Marceau,
the French mime [1923 – 2007]
for a few insights
on the subject of silence.
What does the man who never spoke
have to say?

 

To communicate through silence is a link between the thoughts of man …

I silence and movement .. you can show … the reflection of people …

Music and silence… combine strongly … because music is done with silence … and silence is full of music …

Bojan Mijatovic is one of Marcel Marceau’s students and he wrote these words to accompany part of a film project about the World Mime Organisation –

Movement speaks …

Body tells a story …

Eyes listen …

Heart feels the silence …

Silence is music …

Mime is the language …

Hands are the words …
