Some popular mime artists are Jacques Copeau, Étienne Decroux and Jacques Lecoq. The organizers see the competition as an ac without uttering even a single word. The expressions, movements and acting are the tools the artist uses. Everyone is welcome for this mime competition. Come participate and bring out the French masters in you.
