mimescape and dubai

As the winter grinds on the mime performers at mimescape remember fondly their mime performances in Dubai December 2009.
Yet again they used their excellent mime skills to good effect. They performed 3 different acts every day. When they performed as the chocolate soldiers in their red and white uniforms the visual impact was enormous. Here they used mime illusion and mime technique to enhance the wonderful mime imagery. The costumes are similar to the soldiers from the nutcracker suite and really do stand out. Brendan as usual drawing on all his dance and physical theatre skills brought Rudolph to life and as usual this was a bit hit. Mel used many mime skills as well as utilizing mime and balloon making skills.
The mimescape performers had a great time with wonderful audiences and beautiful warm weather to enjoy.
