By James W. Gousseff.
In this book, Gousseff describes how to produce a pantomime and provides 101 pantomimes for production. "The pantomimist at rest is nobody situated nowhere doing nothing," he writes. "Through movement alone he can create for his audience an infinite variety of characters of whatever size, shape or personality he chooses, engaged in whatever activities he pleases, surrounded by whatever invisible setting he wills his onlookers' waiting imagination to accept." This is the definitive work on the subject and it includes an introduction to the art of pantomime and to some of its most notable practitioners, a large and exciting collection of pantomimes for production and, finally, an exploration of the actual processes of pantomiming.
