HELMIME tour in Helsinki libraries
In spring 2022, you could experience humorous mime performances in Helsinki libraries. The mime études depicted everyday joys, moments of happiness, and blunders – after all, sometimes things get more than tangled up. Neither did the performances forget imaginary worlds.
The events were free of charge, and the non-verbal performances were suitable for people of all languages and ages.
After the performance, it was possible to hold a 10-minute artist discussion where audience members could ask the artists questions about mime or their recent performance. The audience could even try their hand at a mime technique with the artists’ help.
