Film de Mime
Film de Mime is a highly physical, intensely silly, improvised show. After losing his technician, an irritable French film lecturer is forced to recreate an entire epic movie on stage, armed only with a laptop full of music, a microphone (plus vocal sound effects) and his body.
Anything is possible, from indie romance to car chases to showdowns in space. Everything is improvised, wildly energetic and very funny. The show can be adapted for different time slots to include trailers, the creation of a new movie, or even multiple films, entirely from scratch.
The usual show is for ages 15+, though a version for families is also available.
Highly adaptable and available to book for festivals, theatre, cabaret or private events.
Also available as a walkaround act.
Chris trained in physical theatre at the renowned Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris. While there he founded the award-winning company Rhum and Clay, which he ran until 2016. Solo work includes the critically-acclaimed The North! The North! which premiered at Edinburgh Fringe 2017.
