Episode of Series “The Art of silence: pantomimes with Marcel Marceau and his partner Pierre Verry”.
Mime makes the invisible visible and the visible invisible. Marceau’s sometimes comical - but always graceful - interpretation of The Painter in Central Park allows the viewer to “see” objects which are not there.
