Marcel Marceau
Paris International

School of
Mimodrama

The Ecole Internationale de Mimodrame de Paris Marcel Marceau, as it is known in French, was created as a place of instruction and creation for students of the art of Theatrical Mime. Since its opening in 1978, the school has welcomed students from all over the world, and its student body always reflects diversity of nationality.

Students selected by audition at the school enter into a 2-year program of instruction in several disciplines all aimed at training the students' bodies and creative minds in the art of Theatrical Mime. Some skills are taught in regular classes, others in periodic workshops. Instruction includes:

  • Mime (Marceau Technique, creation)
  • Corporeal Mime (Decroux Technique)
  • Acting
  • Ballet
  • Modern Dance
  • Acrobatics
  • Fencing
  • (*Note: Disciplines subject to change according to availability of instructors. Some disciplines begin in 2nd year.)
.

Classes are run from 1 October to 30 June, and all are taught in French. (A language class is provided by the school for foreign students.) Instruction takes place in the school's Dance Studio and Theatre, and the latter is also the setting for a showing of students' creations at the end of the academic year.

.

.

Ecole Marceau hosts Journées portes ouvertes ("Open doors week") in January, when the public may enter to watch the classes. Contact the school office for dates and times.
