    After-show Discussions 2022

    STELLAIRE-Stereoptik-photo-Christophe-Raynaud-de-Lage

    Every event at the Festival has a free After-show discussion after one performance, available to same day ticket holders. You don’t need to book this separately – just stay behind after the performance (maybe move nearer the stage) and the discussion starts – involving the performers and often the director. A Mime Festival host asks a few initial questions, then opens it out to the audience to ask their own. These discussions are fun and very informal and are a highly popular part of each Festival, so you’ll need to book early for that performance – Here is the full list of dates and hosts for 2022:
