Mime Physical Theatre Theatre Performing Arts

There is no universally accepted definition of mime. The art has evolved throughout its history, dating back to the origins of theatre itself, so any definition is partly dependent on historical context. Different styles of mime exist today, so definitions also vary from one "school" or practitioner to another. There are also several other performing arts that are, or have been, associated with mime at one time or another, which further confuses the issue.The working definition of mime for this category will be: The dramatized representation of life, performed for an audience, in which the primary means of the actor's expression is physical, and where this physical expression takes significant prominence over verbal expression.
