Improving One Art Form By Learning From Another

Anyone who lived through the 60's and 70's may have been afflicted by a bad mime.  San Francisco was particularly full of wanna-ba Marcel Marceaus.  They made me cringe. 

This will change your mind about real mime art.

Here is a segment by the late Tony Montanaro on how to mime a tug-of-war.  Watching this superb performance while hearing it broken into components gives me a way to think about my own music – isolating the different components, bringing them together, communicating the whole.  Enjoy the magic.
