They are mimes, yes. But don’t be misled by their white faces. The Nonverbalists elevate the classic mime act to a whole new level. They are gents, they’re players, they’re clowns. They got class and knowledge. They get the spectator’s attention immediately and are always in full control of the situation.Imagine them as personal hosts, magicians, scientists, barkeepers, those professional guys who know their job very well, who guide your audiences, spread info and charm. As masters of physical theater our Nonverbalists don’t need to switch costumes to impersonate various roles and characteristics.
The core team consists of us – Stefan & Rocco from METROCCOLIS – and Lukas & Merlin from DUO DESOLATO. Being invited to the same theater festival in Kurdistan / Iraq in 2012, we discovered our common love for good whisky and a shared vision of a new approach to the subject of neo-mime as we call it. And after a trade fair performance in Hannover where we tested our ideas and succeeded big time, the Nonverbalists were born, an elegantly dressed group of charismatic individuals who cannot wait to bring their smart way of silent entertainment to your event. From a single Nonverbalist to a big group of performers, your needs will be served.
Fast, loud, coloured, flashy and short-lived – everything in our world seems to scream at you nowadays. That’s why our Nonverbalists are a welcome change. They might pass by discreetly but stick out from their surroundings like entities from another time. Their honest smile will mesmerize you and their gentle temper will emit trust and the feeling of relaxation. They are the guys you actually wanna hang out with. And if they got something to show or to tell, people will take the time to watch and listen. Messages reach their addressees without a single spoken word. And even more important, bumping into the Nonverbalists will be remembered.
Hire your personal Nonverbalists for: Trade fairs – they gonna promote your products and services in a personal and charming way. Shopping malls – special events like holiday happenings need special audience magnets. Festivals – strolling and flirting Nonverbalists make your audiences fall in love, that’s a promise. Congresses & conventions – after long talks people should get a break, and why not an entertaining one. Corporate events – they welcome your guests, guide through the evening and spread your drinks and giveaways. Parties – our silent dandies know how to dance, oh boy they do. Let them put their swing shoes on and go wild with your audience.
