Welcome to GBG Mime Fest 2022

We are thrilled to invite you to the 5th edition of GBG Mime Fest. This year’s festival offers audience members of all ages a range of unique experiences from a multitude of mime expressions from Swedish, Dutch, Swiss and Spanish artists and companies.

During the 5-day festival poetic, comic and experimental performances with outstanding mime-actors will be presented alongside an extensive program of workshops, talks and film including the first-ever feature documentary about the life of legendary French mime Marcel Marceau.

The opening performance of the festival is by renowned Amsterdam-based Jakop Ahlbom Company with the performance Lebensraum. A thrilling foray into a bizarre Keatonesque world accompanied by live music on stage.

Our stages this year are Göteborgs Stadsteater Lilla Scen, Stora Teatern and Aftonstjärnan.




GBG Mime Fest is a festival that offers high-quality live performances within the expression of mime along with workshops, master classes and academic talks within theatre and mime. The festival aims to push the boundaries of what mime is and can be in the 21st century by inviting both established and emerging artists to share their work with a wider audience. In addition to stage performances the festival presents installations, shorter acts and music acts.

GBG Mime Fest är en festival som erbjuder högkvalitativ scenkonst med mimen som grund. Festivalens strävan är att tänja på gränserna av vad mim är och kan vara på 2000-talet genom att presentera nationella och internationella verk av både etablerade och up-and-coming artister.
