Sue Proctor doing mime at Bolina.

This workshop will explore mime as non-verbal communication. From basic physical techniques to emotional expression, we will play with concepts of body awareness, self-expression and clown communication. Through fun and laughter, movement and use of sound, we will explore a vocabulary for non-verbal relationships and performance. People of all levels of movement or performance experience are welcome.
