  • HELMIME Mime Workshops

    With different mime techniques, we can create illusions, make invisible visible and play with imaginary objects, partners and powers. To succeed in these, a mime needs strong body control and knowledge of movement patterns that are rarely used in everyday life: waves, isolations and the fixpoint, not forgetting nonverbal expression and storytelling.

  • HELMIME Club

    The praised HELMIME Mime Club returned in November 2022 after a couple years. The Club was held at Puppet Theatre Sampo in Helsinki and at the PAN festival in Liptovský Mikuláš in Slovakia. During the evenings we saw several spectacular and delightful performances from national and international mime artists.

HELMIME Mime Events

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 and mime theatre Auraco from Helsinki, Finland. Events are organised according to resources.
