Pantomime – thoughts in gestures
Pantomime – thoughts in gestures
„Pantomime“ (gr. pantomimos – all imitating one) is a type of art based on plastic body movements and mimics. It often possesses the elements of dramatic and musical performance. The pantomime performance is based on literature works or original plots; there are also pantomimes without a storyline“.

It is one of the oldest arts, which has started and developed together with a human, it has been closely intertwined with other forms of art: theatre, dance, music. With the increasing popularity of the theatre, it has merged into other arts thus broadening them and highlighting the artistic effect. After merging into other arts, it would lose its essence and become a supplement of another art. An English actor, director, shareholder, and theatre critic, Edward Gordon Craig, had a distinct influence on the revival of the art of pantomime and on the appearance of a new modern pantomime.

The artistic strength of pantomime lies in its conditionality. Drama also seeks conditionality, however, in pantomime the conditionality is boundless. The entire of life of a man can be exhibited in e few minutes. It is the “capacity” of this type of art. Pantomime explores universal issues, the overarching phenomena. Pantomime includes many abstractions, symbols and allegories.

Conditionality, speaking in allegorical language, search for metaphors as well as their transformation into symbols constitute the basis for the art of pantomime. However, the danger lies in here - the threat of formalism. The line between sensible, alive, persuasive act expressed in a new artistic language and an interesting, but cold unexciting form is trivial. In the art of pantomime, the form can promptly turn into a scheme, become lifeless and useless. There is no continuously operating professional school that would prepare pantomime actors, playwrights, directors.

The pantomime alphabet and stylistic exercises involve not very complicated components of motion and body control, which can be easily imitated and mastered by every drama actor without greater effort.

An important rule is to remember that there is no need to rush to make gestures, to give time to each of them, to highlight the uniqueness of each gesture. Gestures are not expressed as quickly as words, they have to highlight a theme which is important while expressing it with the position of the body.
According to Beryl Morina, in classic pantomime, it is important to capture the idea before action. “The motion and only motion is capable of turning an actor into a true creator of the theatre, after liberating the actor from slavish dependence of other arts.” - with such a strong belief, E. Dekru starts analysing in detail the specific program for training drama actor. He has created “Le Mime” - a new contemporary art of pantomime.

The method of classic pantomime was taught in the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre by a professor, actress and director, Elena Savukynaitė.

The method of pantomime is based on plastic movements, gestures, body expressions, facial muscle movements. These instruments are used to reveal inner feelings, emotions, states. The methodology teaches to speak in somatic language thus refusing expressiveness of words. During the learning process, the pantomime alphabet is mastered: the first, the second, the third pantomime step, depicting movement at different speeds and angles without actual movement. The whole body is employed. The creation of an imaginary wall, pulling the rope, work with imaginary objects are expressed accurately restoring their shape, size, physical characteristics. During the learning process, the attention is paid on the smallest details, the attentiveness of an actor is developed. While learning the alphabet, it is important not to perform the learnt technique in a dusty manner; the actor has to combine the pantomime alphabet in order to create an idea and to express it in motion. The beauty of the pantomime lies in the accuracy of movement and thought, the mastery of a pause and rhythm. Each exercise is motivated, dealing with some kind of creative challenge. It is important to stylize the movement.

The pantomime technique is important for its development of the sense of form and composition in an actor.
