Description

With white facial makeup and red lipstick, Philippe Bizot managed to be an aged man recalling his memories, a narcissistic lady vacationing on the beach and a naughty schoolboy up to mischief.

They were among a range of characters played by the leading French mime artist in his new 40-minute show Nostalgia at Beijing’s Fengshang Theater.

During a 10-minute improvised show following the main drama, Bizot mimed the movements of every single character suggested by the audience, without a second thought : a snail about to be cooked, a man heading for a date stuck in traffic and another whose wig has been blown away by a gust of wind.

Displaying exaggerated facial expressions and actions, with a blue spotlight cast on him, he almost resembled the Stanley Ipkiss character from superhero fantasy The Mask : Quick to change but very good at it.

"It is my work to change," Bizot said, emphasizing that his objective is to find surprises and then, in turn, surprise his audience.

Bizot started mime when he was only eight years old, after being captivated by legendary French mime Marcel Marceau. Now he, too, has become a master of the wordless art. But once he broke his silence on stage, Bizot became remarkably expansive.

After more than 30 years in showbusiness, he is observant at bringing everyday life onto the stage. "Wherever I go or sit, I always examine people around me. Everyone will have something interesting happen to him or her and I write it down and then show it to the audience after some artistic work on it," the 57-year-old explained.

"It is not only a magic tool, but also a work of body language, of emotions, the beautiful movements, elegance. To me, it’s a universal language."
