Pantomime Origin
for full text go to: Wikipedia - Pantomime
The performance of Pantomime originates at its earliest in ancient Greece, but exploded in popularity during the reign of Augustus in ancient Rome. T he style and content of modern panto has very clear and strong links with the Commedia dell'arte, a form of popular theatre that arose in Italy, in the early middle ages, and which reached England by the 16th century. The gender role reversal resembles the old festival of Twelfth Night, a combination of Epiphany and midwinter feast, when it was customary for the natural order of things to be reversed. This tradition can be traced back to pre-Christian European festivals such as Samhain and Saturnalia. In Restoration England, a pantomime was considered a low form of opera, rather like the Commedia dell'arte but without Harlequin (rather like the French Vaudeville). In 1717, John Rich introduced Harlequin to the British stage under the name of "Lun" (for "lunatic") and began performing wildly popular pantomimes. These pantomimes gradually became more topical and comic, often involving as many special theatrical effects as possible. Colley Cibber and his colleagues competed with Rich and produced their own pantomimes, and pantomime was a substantial (if decried) subgenre in Augustan drama. This form had virtually died out by the end of the 19th century....
In other non English countries though, Pantomime is equivalent to the English Mime resp. Mime Artist and is open to a wider range of topics and characters than English Pantomime. Famous European Mime Artists like Etienne Decroux, and Marcel Marceau or modern Pantomime Damir Dantes took the technical aspect of this ancient art to the highest levels of physical expression requiring long years of practice and enormous body control for this art of creating multi dimensional Illusions without any props on stage.
