Leigh the Mime

Based: Cape Town

Bringing creative ideas to life through the art of mime.

I am a professional mime artist and have performed locally and abroad since 1997. Stand interactive is the corporate and events performance arm for mime and for those that I have trained. All the characters mimes below are skilled mime artists trained for many years in the art of mime. Be careful of cheap imitations…it shows in the way they move and interact. Anybody can stand still, very few are skilled performers in the art of mime.

CHARLIE – Everyone’s favourite character mime,Charlie needs no introduction. From his classic walk, walking stick, tipping of his hat, moustache and slapstick tricks, to charming crowds wherever he goes. A crowd pleaser at any event.

CLASSIC MIME (black & white) – Roaming mimes create a wonderful vibe at Festivals, Fairs, Shopping Centres and Corporate functions alike as they interact through mimicry, creating unseen worlds and comic surprises

CONVICT – Mime: Convict is a fun character mime who sneaks around peaking into shopping bags, handbags and whatever is there for the taking. He is an excellent character mime for entertaining passers by at events, fairs, shopping centres and in any public area. Great entertainment value.

ROBOTMAN – This interactive robotic mime character first made its appearance at the V&A Waterfront and is the character that gets the most wows. “Is it real or not”. Ladies have often run off leaving their shoes behind out of surprise when Robotman moves. Children love Robotman and grown-ups become children when watching this character perform.

ELF – is a character created by the collaboration of Norman Pudney, Action Entertainment, and Leigh the Mime. Obvious for a Christmas theme.

LIVING STATUES – attracts ‘feet’ to your exhibition with great success. Here Leigh the Mime and another trained mime is performing for Charlene Sauerman Couture at a Bridal Fair.

CRASH TEST DUMMIES – these faceless interactive mime characters were first seen at the opening of the ‘We will Rock You’ – Musical. They are available in Green and Blue as above and also Neon Pink and Neon Green.
