Mime Department HAMU
The Mime Department at The Music and Dance Faculty of The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague was founded in 1992 by Prof. Ctibor Turba ( head until 1999 ). After that Prof. Boris Hybner became head of the Department until 2010. During that time the study programme was focussed on the basic styles of Mime – Theatre / Mime, Slapstick, Clown. In 2010 Adam Halaš became the head of the Department coming with a new educative concept of Mime –Theatre. Apart the basic styles the education is focussed on further styles of Mime such as Physical Theatre and New Circus. Through this connection of the classical as well as the contemporary styles the study programme is linking to the Tradition of Czech Pantomime offering a modern approach towards Mime reacting on the present. The study programme is focussed especially on Devised theatre of the attendants.
