Overview

The great French mime performer, Claude Kipnis, reveals the mechanisms and techniques of mime in an easy-to-understand translation. This is not a theoretical "art of" book, but a functional "how to" and "why to" instructional guide. Individual exercises are included, together with detailed coverage of body movements, the illusion and how to create a world. We know of no other book that so comprehensively explains how the functions of mime are achieved. Certainly a basic text for any aspiring mime.

I bought this book recently and I am very happy with what I received. Claude Kipnis explains everything a beginner needs to know about performing many illusions that have so fascinated me for several years. All exercises are explained in an easy to read manner, and there are several pictures included to show what it is exactly that you are to do. I would recommend this book to anyone that has ever wondered how to walk in place or go somewhere without 'going.' It is a great book.
