Much ado about nothing.
Mime is a non-verbal and diverse art form that is living its new boom. Mimes create stories, objects and different atmospheres with movements and gestures. The illusions are created with carefully trained movements and immobilities. In a world full of words and stuff, mime trusts the imagination of the performers and the viewers.
HELMIME events in Finland increase knowledge about mime and offer learning possibilites for both beginners as well as for professionals of performing arts. HELMIME shows the diversity of mime, different styles and techniques, and breaks stereotypes.
The artistic director of HELMIME is Kati Lehtola, who finished her mime studies at the Pantomime/Mime department of Die Etage, a performing arts school in Berlin in 2015. The education gave her a strong technical background, a large network and a little bit anarchistic attitude towards mime.
HELMIME is the common name for the mime events organised by Dance Theatre Auraco. Events are organised according to resources.
