The Art of Silence
“I grew up with a deaf father…my life sometimes resembled a silent movie.” — Maurizius Staerkle Drux, Director
Marcel Marceau was undoubtedly the world’s most famous mime. He mesmerized people around the globe without saying a word.
During WWII Marceau joined the French Resistance and smuggled children across the border to safety, into Switzerland. With gestures and mimes, he taught the children to communicate in silence. Silence was their tool for survival.
After the war, Marceau transformed mime into a unique art form and achieved world fame with it. It is a testament to Marceau’s career that some of his students range from entertaining kids in hospitals to using the pantomime art form to help those with motor system disorders such as Parkinson’s disease.
