Philology XVI

mime

tiny
precise control
the mime creates his universe
as we do ours
his duality within duality
he believes
but knows he created it
unlike ours

point-fix
point-release
isolation
glide
illusion

all is what it seems not to be
place weight on the right leg
sag hip to make it look
as if the weight is
on the left leg

magic

mime:
touch a butterfly

mime-blanche:
your hand is a butterfly

ballet:
you are a butterfly

create what you touch
a wall
a balloon
a feather
an anchor
a rope
a baton
mind and movement
make a world
