Mime Artist with Balloons

Attending the annual Buskerfest in Toronto is always a delight for me and my family. In between watching the various acts, we stroll amongst artists and mimes. During the 2011 festival, we came across this mime artist who had covered herself with white balloons.

My children were fascinated by her so we stood and watched her for a while.

I found her costume to be creative and original. Certainly different to what one would expect.

Do you enjoy watching mime artists?

  1. The costume is incredible and your photographs show just how much time must have been invested in making it.
    As to watching mimes: when I shared a multi-bedroom house with a number of people coming and going, we often had a resident mime. Supper was hilarious, as was any encounter when he was in mime mode. He also knew how to juggle and had a busker act with a friend. (Busker festivals are great fun!). Eventually, he and his friend formed a partnership and started a school to teach circus, busker, mime and other such things.


      1. It was fun! There were also a lot of musicians in and out of the house. As I can’t play an instrument, and have no singing voice, they gave me a kazoo!


  2. I have seen some students miming in the streets of Wellington. It is very interesting to see them doing it! Hopefully I’ll have my camera with me when I see one again.
