Corporeal Mime transcends cultural barriers because it is based on physical expression and not on appearance. The actor appears on stage with his body, therefore the actor must learn the art of the body. The corporeal mime/actor is articulated, geometric, precise; his gesture is clean and essential; he doesn’t shout feelings, he doesn’t scream emotions, he portrays it on the body; the drama is born from the struggle of his muscles; his weight lies on the edge of balance; he is present.“
