Marcel Marceau, poeta del silencio
“El silencio no tiene límites,
para mí los límites los pone la palabra.”
Marcel Marceau, 1923-2007
Para tí que escribiste frases silenciosas en el espacio, una mariposa al aire, y en un minuto de silencio el regalo de una magia.
Marcel Marceau, una lágrima por tí…
*Do not the most moving moments of our lives find us without words?
*I have designed my style pantomimes as white ink drawings on black backgrounds, so that man’s destiny appears as a thread lost in an endless labyrinth. I have tried to shed some gleams of light on the shadow of man startled by his anguish.
*In silence and movement you can show the reflection of people.
*It’s good to shut up sometimes.
*Music and silence combine strongly because music is done with silence, and silence is full of music.
*Music conveys moods and images. Even in opera, where plots deal with the structure of destiny, it’s music, not words, that provides power.
*Never get a mime talking. He won’t stop.
*To communicate through silence is a link between the thoughts of man.
*What sculptors do is represent the essence of gesture. What is important in mime is attitude.
