Mime is a silent form of storytelling. Unlike other forms of drama, nobody speaks. Instead, exaggerated movements and gestures are used to tell a tale.

Young Post is offering students a chance to learn more about the ancient artform in a workshop on October 30, in conjunction with the HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity. The workshop will teach students how to use their bodies to 'talk', as well as some improvisation skills. To attend the workshop, e-mail your name, age, phone number and school to com, with 'Mime' in the subject field, before October 25, 4pm.

The Hong Kong Fringe Mime and Movement Laboratory are also putting on a free mime show, Where Am I Going?, tomorrow at 5pm at the HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity Multimedia Theatre. To get a ticket, e-mail with your name and phone number. Walk-ins are also welcome.
