Episode of Series “The Art of silence: pantomimes with Marcel Marceau and his partner Pierre Verry”.
In four minutes, and not moving from one spot, Marceau expresses the seven-ages-of-humankind, beginning with life emerging from a mother’s womb, through the cycle of life, to the grave. Marceau believes “this pantomime reveals, maybe the best of what mime can do in condensing time.”
