The American Mime Theatre

61 Fourth Avenue, Floor 2
New York, NY 10003


American Mime is a unique indigenous performing art that blends, in a new balance, the arts of acting, moving, pantomime, playwriting and design. It is a complete theatre medium defined by its own aesthetic laws, terminology, techniques, script material and teaching methods, in which non-speaking actors, in characterization, perform the symbolic activities of American Mime plays through movement that is both telling and beautiful.

The American Mime Theatre is a professional performing company and training school. It was founded in 1952 and has performed its services continuously since then under the direction of Paul J. Curtis, who created the art form.

American Mime, Inc., is a not-for-profit tax exempt Public Foundation incorporated in 1970 to promote the medium, American Mime internationally.

Friends of American Mime are people who have been moved by this medium and who contribute their time, skills, and money to achieve the further recognition of American Mime.
