What is miming?
Miming is the art of making the invisible visible.
Pantomime itself has been around for 1,000s of years (dating back to ancient Greek theatre), however modern mime as popularized by Marcel Marceau is traditionally silent.

There are many traditions built into this art form, from the makeup and costume to the “rule” of not speaking.

Fun fact: Traditionally modern mime is only allowed one prop. A chair.
And the only thing the mime can do with that chair is sit in it. (I.e. he cannot pick it up and turn it into a flamethrower)
