I became a professional mime artist in 1994 and I have been teaching mime ever since. I began my work as an assistant teacher at VITA-MIM mime company (1994-98), I continued as an autonomous teacher at my own studio and company: Pantomancs Company (1996-2001), Melange Mime Association and Studio (1998-2004), New Generation Mime Company (1999-2011), and Mimage Mime Theatre and Studio (2009-2015).

Developing self-knowledge and creative thinking, expressing one’s personality, overcoming inhibitions, and creating self-confidence and harmony are all automatic, positive “side effects” of my sessions.

We work in an empty space: only our fantasy can set limit to where we go and where we arrive. As one of my kind apprentices said: mime is the matter of imagination…
