The Corporel Mime of Etienne Decroux
Developed by Etienne Decroux, Corporeal Mime stems from the theatrical experiments of the early 20th century (Appia, Craig, and Copeau). Its objective is to place drama inside the moving body, rather than to substitute gesture for speech as in pantomime. Both sculptor and statue, the mime must apply principles that are at the heart of drama to movement: pause, hesitation, weight, resistance, and surprise.
