Mime show at Alliance Francaise Friday


Alliance Française de Dhaka requests the pleasure of your company on the occasion of a solo Mime show titled ‘Circle’ by Mir Lokman at AFD Auditorium on Friday, August 12 at 6.30 PM. Your presence will be highly appreciated.
Marcel Marceau defined mime as ‘the art of expressing feelings by attitudes and not a means of expressing words through gestures.’ Through Partha Pratim Majumder, a student of Marceau, Bangladesh saw the rise of mime in the 1970s. Since then the unsung art of mime has been flourishing with increasing number of appreciative audience not only in Dhaka but also all over the country.Mir Lokman, an up-and-coming Bangladeshi mime artist will be staging his seventh full-length solo mime production on 12 August. Mir is the founder and director of Dhaka University Mime Action (DUMA). His mime focuses on contemporary issues, demanding yet ironical situations in our daily lives and commonsensical occurrences. This production will feature eight sketches.
