Transcript of Mime
In January 1910, Harpo joined two of his brothers to form "The Three Nightingales". Harpo was inspired to develop his "silent" routine after reading a review of one of their performances which had been largely ad-libbed. The theater critic wrote, "Adolph Marx performed beautiful pantomime which was ruined whenever he spoke." In 1955, Harpo made an appearance on Lucille Ball's sitcom "I Love Lucy," in which they re-enacted the famous mirror scene from the Marx Brothers movie Duck Soup (1933). In this scene, he takes the place of Groucho, while Lucy takes his place. Why are we studying mime? Mime uses isolation in its technique. (Moving one part of the body separate from all of the other parts.) This isolation can give you more control of your body, and is specifically useful in artforms such as dance. Michael Jackson is a prime example of someone who uses many dance moves based in mime technique. The moon walk uses the same principles as the mime walk. We have a better appreciation for mime, and other art forms when we understand it and its history. To help with awareness of your facial expressions and body language. The makeup has a lot of contrast so that facial expressions are easier to see.
