Mimes are the cartoonists of theatre, illustrating ideas in as few moves as possible. Making the invisible visible, mime is the international art of imagination and storytelling.

Principle techniques are articulation (moving one part of the body at a time) and fixed point. This is a guide through fascinating techniques that can make a performer truly memorable.

For whom: This is for enthusiastic professionals, who want to know more about what makes visual theatre really visual and who are not afraid to move.


Nola is trained at the Royal Ballet School in London and with Marcel Marceau in Paris.
She has created 10 solo shows and 5 two man shows to date and her long performing career has taken her to 68 countries.
As a director, she has adapted works by Shakespeare, Strindberg, Ibsen, Dumas and Bram Stoker among others, winning the funniest play of the year award in Sweden for her version of Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba.

Nola has performed and taught many times at the London International Mime Festival which she founded with Joseph Seelig in 1977.
