Guest Artists


JIDAI is from Tokyo. He began his independent study of pantomime in 1985. He studied Japanese traditional dance Nihon-Buyou with Tamasaho Fujima. He gained knowledge about Mime Art Theatre from Terry Press—the best student and assistant to Stefan Niedziałkowski. In 2010, he started "JIDAI Organic Mime" and in 2012, founded and became a chairman of Japan Art Mime Sosciety. His theatre is both poetic and surreal: it mixes poetry with his original mime technique "human computer graphics". JIDAI has performed during fashion shows, operas, and dance performances. His other pursuits include martial arts, meditation, and methods of breathing. He has written four books and published three exercise DVDs on the topic of body and mind.
