What is Mim'provisation?
It is an encounter of mime of all forms: All techniques, styles, and schools.

Our goal is to bring together those who practice “mime”, the young and the old, professionals and amateurs, and to create surprising and unusual encounters by giving a venue to the creativity specific to the art of mime.

In addition, it is forum to discover and give recognition to the mime artists who excel in the art of mime and improvisation. Through peer recognition and audience participation, the evening cultivates some of the best examples of contemporary mime while pushing its limits and possibilities.

If you love mime, this is the event for you! If you are not sure what mime is, come and discover it!
