The Living Statues
Stand absolutely still for five minutes… just five minutes. It is not easy. You will notice pain appears from your feet, your back and other joints. Now imagine standing absolutely still for two hours or more. That is what the mime artists that perform as human living statues do.
Being a living statue takes practice in concentration, physical control and slow breathing technique, as the famous The Living Statue Company explains. Add an interesting character, an eye-grabbing costume and ample body paint. The results can be fascinating.
