Mime Basics: Acting Tips and Techniques : How to Form a Rope in Mime


Alright, we have our string. This is easy.
Look how easy I can make it glide. I can have a nice expression, or I can be surprised.
Where is this string coming from? Now, uh-oh. The string is getting more difficult. Now
I’m going to lean out and suddenly the string could get larger. The string could become
a rope, which means now I’m giving more space between my hand. Here was the little rope,
tiny little area. Now to make it a rope, I’m going to move my fingers. I still have to
pull the hands together reaching up. Generally, because we’re right handed, I make my left
hand solid, bring my right hand above, and then pull down. Pull that hand down. I’m actually
feeling. I’m making the rope, looking up, and pulling the bottom hand to bring the top
hand down.
