The Camden Fringe 2017: MIMES (Most Imbecilic Mime Ensemble Show) at Etcetera Theatre

Three unconventional mimes show their ridiculous life of living in the "world of mime". There is the leader that follows what he thinks are the principles of mime: you cannot talk and you cannot use real objects. There is the believer that follows the leader. Then there is the rebel. Because as in real life if someone tries to enforce the rules there will be always someone trying to break them. This is how the conflict starts and the MOST IMBECILIC MIMES ENSEMBLE SHOW begins. From playing out the birth of mime to a Hamlet style death as hard as they try, getting along yields no results. Even changing a light bulb proves too difficult. In the middle: tennis, Pina Bausch, Star Wars, special effects, Mexican standoff and... Simon & Garfunkel. MIMES is a visual comedy and clown show that uses the technique of mime to parody real life. Marcel Marceau once said: "Words can keep people a part, mime can be a bridge between them." But not in this show. The Three Dots are a company from Italy and the UK.
