Mime Class - Tuesday Mornings & Sunday Afternoons

Starting in 2011 there will be two mime classes in NYC at pierStudios.

Tuesday Mornings from 10:15 to 11:30 AM
Sunday Afternoons from 2:10 to 3:25 PM

Classes will be $20 a class or $15 per class if you prepay for 10 classes in advance. Contact Stanley at or go to for more information.

This is an open on going class so you can come in at any point. If you are passing through NYC feel free to stop by for a class. This class covers many kinds of mime techniques. Mime is one of those basic tools that clowns need to brush up on and recharging your mime batteries is a good idea. Part of the motivation for teaching these classes is much of the mime technique I have seen as part of clown theater festivals has been pour to sloppy. You do not need to be a white face mime to have great effective technique. Having good mime muscles can have a positive effect on the over all quality of your show.

"Channel One" Extended through November 1st, 2010

Here is a second show, also one of the better shows of the 2010 NY Clown Theater Festival having a surprise extension. It will be presented Triskelion Arts on Monday Nights at 8 PM. It is great to see theaters and art centers in NYC picking up some of these better shows from the festival. It shows great initiative and resourcefulness on the part of performers to make the connections and figure out how to extend their shows. “Channel One” is a fun, somewhat outrageous evening, plus they are developing their original pieces, bringing in new material and will even have some guest stars. This is one show that will be good to see how it grows. Congratulation to these two performers, creators and now co-producers of this run, Emly James & Ishah Janssen-Faith.

Triskelion Arts (118 N. 11th St. 3rd fl. between Berry & Wythe in Brooklyn,NY) Tickets ($10) may be reserved by calling 718-599-3577 or
