More than one mime artist increases the possibilities,
our mime artists are able to work in tandem or as an ensemble,
increasing the impact and area covered.

tightly organised troupe.

The Workings of a Mime Artist and Mime Artists.
Solo Mime Artist - solo mime is one of the most skilled of entertainment genres. A mime artist has to create interest, excitement, empathy, narrative and humour whilst remaining silent. They constantly discover the ‘moment’ and those moments might be completely different and need different emotions from the last. This sensitivity and awareness are key to being able to perform appropriately and fantastically. The mime artist's greatest skill is being able to do all this and judge it right by finding the appropriate level of engagement with the audience whilst continually generating spectacle, comedy and imaginary plots. Done well it is a captivating experience, fun for all and very rewarding for the mime artist.
Group mime - has all the complexities of solo mime with the added issue of working as an ensemble and not as a group of solo mimes. The mime artists need to have a good level of understanding and trust in order to traverse and perform with a unity.
What the agents say:- ‘Electric Cabaret never cease to surprise me.
Their energy and commitment to characters
are second to none and when working in ensemble,
they are a force to be reckoned with.
Hard working and reliable, I can honestly say
they are one of my favourite groups and I try to use them wherever I can.
I can guarantee that they will be a delight to watch and that my guests or clients will be truly happy.’

Silent Clowns and of course - Charlie Chaplin
Silent clowns get no more famous than Charlie Chaplin,
and we offer a Charlie Chaplin inspired act in homage to the great man.
Our Silent Clowns of yesteryear are clown/mime variations who can be themed to specific eras. For example Charlie Chaplin inspired clowns from the silent movie era; gangster clowns from the 1940‘s; silent clowns right up to the present day and contemporary clowns.
