Corporeal mime is a type of physical theater that places drama inside the moving human body, rather than substituting gesture for speech (as in pantomime). Besides an original work of corporeal mime, The Singing Mime also includes original theremin, guitar, spoken word, and vocal work.
The papier-mâché installation is made from Jess’s highly sentimental childhood / young adult journals, photographs, letters, sketchbooks, and first little pink Precious Moments bible. As a part of the installation, Jess has created a shrine to her teenage dreams and invites the public to add to it throughout the month.
