""Mime Matters""
 
   Has anyone watched this video by the Royal Academy of Dance ?
This was I think produced for dance sudents and teachers, but everyone can enjoy it and learn about mime in ballets from this video. It's fascinating to see Sibley and Dowell in Swan Lake (showing the mime scene). It also features the RB dancers such as Cojocaru, Kobborg and Tatersall. The lovely Sarah Wildor shows the mime in Coppelia and La Fille. Oh how much I'm missing her in Covent Garden ! The video costs 17.99 and highly recommended.

   I agree - and if you want to see Monica Mason as Carabosse, with Deanne Bergsma as the Lilac Fairy, this is the place - although they're both in just ordinary clothes, it's still mesmerising! And there's also a little bit of Cojocaru as Giselle, and Luke Heydon as Dr Coppelius.

It's also fascinating to hear Pamela May and Barbara Fewster talking about the classical mime they learned in the 1930's, and to see them demonstrating the basic moves to Monica Mason.

And David Bintley in a bit from Carnaval.

You get the feeling there's an awful lot more of the discussion on the cutting room floor - I could have done with a lot more of it!

   87 minutes.

I forgot to say that it's the first dance video I've come across that's in 'widescreen' format.
