Adventures in Mime & Space:
The Legacy of Marcel Marceau
with Rob Mermin
Join us as Rob Mermin, clown extraordinaire and founder of Vermont’s own Circus Smirkus, recounts his experiences studying under THE master of mime, Marcel Marceau. Mermin will share rare film clips and demonstrate techniques of the art of pantomime, bringing to life the essence of what Marceau called “the eloquent art of silence.” Learn more about the history of Marcel Marceau, (born Marcel Mangel to a Jewish family in Strasbourg, France), and how he came to the world of mime following his work with the French Resistance and his father’s death at Auschwitz.
Mime Workshop with Rob Mermin
Rob will conduct a special mime workshop from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m., introducing the Marcel Marceau style and the Etienne Decroux Mime Technique. Foundations of the Decroux system will be taught, with a focus on pantomime acting and use of gesture for the speaking actor. Pre-registration for the $25 workshop is required.
