History

London International Mime Festival is the Capital’s longest established international theatre season. It was founded by producer, Joseph Seelig, and mime/clown, Nola Rae. Inspired by Cologne's Gaukler Festival and Amsterdam’s Festival of Fools, the first edition took place in 1977 to showcase the work of British visual theatre artists, many better known abroad than in their own country.

The programme spanned the spectrum of wordless performance including live art, physical theatre, new circus, puppetry and object theatre – work which is still at the heart of the Festival’s annual season. It was presented and funded by leading London fringe venue, the Cockpit Theatre, with support from the Arts Council of Great Britain.

The late 1970’s was a period of resurgence for innovative forms of theatrical expression where words played little or no part, and which now inform mainstream theatre at every level. Before Dance Umbrella (1978) or LIFT (1981), when international theatre work was rarely seen in London, the Festival struck a chord with public and performers alike.

Helen Lannaghan joined the organisation in 1987, bringing new ideas and expertise. The Southbank Centre has been a partner since 1988, the Barbican since 2003, and over the years the Festival has collaborated with some twenty-five London venues, from the West End to the Natural History Museum, the Almeida, Roundhouse, Laban, Royal Opera House, Sadler's Wells, Soho Theatre, BAC and South London Gallery. Spin-off seasons have been programmed at many UK regional centres, and as far afield as Hong Kong.

The Mime Festival is Britain’s annual showcase for the best in contemporary visual theatre, a popular annual event in one of the world's most dynamic and multi-cultural capitals. It has presented many of the most distinguished names in its field: Jacques Lecoq, Bolek Polivka, Philippe Genty, Lindsay Kemp, Annie Fratellini, Jérôme Deschamps, Marcel Marceau and his company, as well as supporting a new generation of important artists like La Ribot, Aurélien Bory, Mathurin Bolze, Josef Nadj, Licedei, Simon McBurney’s Complicité, Phelim McDermot’s Improbable Theatre, and many of today’s leading animation, live art and circus-theatre ensembles. The full list of festival participants, 1977-2013, can be be seen opposite.

In 2008 Joseph Seelig was appointed Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Republic. Helen Lannaghan received the same honour in 2009. They were elected Honorary Fellows of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 2011, and in 2012 received a special Total Theatre Award for making a Significant Contribution to the territory of Total Theatre.
