the Mime


What he lacks in words, this mime makes up in movement.


Rod Lara is a first class mime who is skilled and experienced. He affords this delightfully silent character elements of clown and, perhaps, a few dancing sequences. This Mime will astonish the audience with his hilarious antics and, most often, breakdancing skills.


Aside from roving work, Mimo has delighted many with his one-mime show that has the right touch of vintage, which can be enjoyed with either backing music or live accompaniment.

Mimo also collaborates with musician Phil Carrol in their 'French Music & Mime Shows', which they perform at various schools. READ MORE
