Welcome to my bio page.  

I would like to share some of the wonderful experiences I have had performing as a
mime artist along with the amazing people that I have spent time with exploring the Art of Mime.


                                                                            I am very fortunate to have been taught and  directed by
                                                                  Marcel Marceau. 

             Marcel Marceau was not only world renowned but such a giving teacher and director with endless energy and passion for the art form.  
             He so generously offered his mastery; expressing shifts of emotion and character, quality of movement and a flying spirit
                                             that touches hearts and embraced the world audience.   He is missed dearly.

                                                                             My foremost director and performance experience has been with

                                    Paul J. Curtis, Director of The American Mime Theatre

My ongoing studies at The American Mime Theatre developed into ten years as a lead female company member.  The performance pieces we
perform are visually spectacular theatrical experiences that touch the audience.  Paul Curtis has created a new art form, known as American Mime,
and a unique teaching methodology.  The American Mime Theatre is a Company and a School, founded in 1952, making it the longest running
 Mime theatre in the world.

Dance Diary
By Jennie Schulman

The American Mime Theatre offered a performance at the Donnell Library Center Auditorium on Oct. 8. The company was founded in 1952 by Paul J. Curtis and has been under his direction since.
A delightful duo "Music Box," performed by Janet Carafa and Mario Brufau, opened the program. Two figures emerge from a crouched position, rising in the sharp, jerky movements of puppets. Circling in mincing steps, they soon begin to indicate characteristic human behavior -- kissing, turning away from each other, and getting into a wrangle. But before they can wreak havoc they stop suddenly, as if their inner mechanisms had run out, and revert to their original crouching position. The two mimes seemed to enjoy their antics immensely. So did the onlookers.
