Drama – Mime

Posted: 19th November 2020


Year 5 are studying Mime this half term. Mime is the art of portraying a character, mood, idea, or narration by gestures and bodily movements. They have studied the work of Marcel Marceau and Charlie Chaplin as well as the more recent work of Rowan Atkinson as Mr. Bean. The children have been learning the difference between a mime and a mime scene. They have worked on performing the mimes’ ‘the box’, ‘the door’ and’ the wall’. This week they looked at weight and mass, how do you make an invisible suitcase appear heavy? Just ask year 5 to show you.
