Pi the Mime is an established and celebrated Cabaret Act. Having appeared internationally, won multiple awards and headlined many established and prestigious shows, Pi the Mime is usually the variety in a line up. Combining mime, clown, dance, drag and burlesque, Pi's list of acts are so varied that they can balance out most line ups.
Pi the Mime's Clown based acts are equal parts ridiculous and poetic. Often involving the audience, the acts play with the idea of visual spectacle.
[Acts Include Mime-Oirs of a Geisha*, Mission ImPIssible* and Pitanic]
Dance plays a large part in all of Pi's acts, but these are specifically dance based - demonstrating skill, technique and musicality. They benefit from a large stage.
[Acts Include Pi Was Born to Be a Dancer, Pi-Chaplin Untitiled* and Hip Hip Pi Pi]
Although Pi is known for bending gender, these acts specifically play on [and off] the binary. They are often heavily rooted in political statement.
[Acts Include Independent Womime*, What Makes a Mime and A Mime Scorned*]
Embracing the element of burlesque, these acts tell stories and play specifically with the concealing and revealing of the body.
[Acts Include Nine to Pi*, Mime Looks Like a Lady and Get Outta Your Pi*]
Obviously Pi is always a mime. However, these acts clearly demonstrate the level of physical skill and isolation Pi has trained years to achieve.
[Acts Include Wind Up Pi, Pi-Vate Dancer* and Pichelangelo: Living Statue*]
Whilst Pi is still training in larger pieces of apparatus, the mime does utilise some small pieces of equipment in these acts, specifically object manipulation.
[Acts Include Pi Can't Go On Without You*, PiSession* and Mince Pi-es*]
*Acts marked with an asterix have video footage that can be sent on request. All other acts have a full bio that can be emailed if required.
