LAURENT Decol, the world-renowned French mime artist, put on a spectacular mime show last night for his audience at the the Japan-Pacific ICT Centre in USP.

The Don't Breathe a Word show was divided into nine acts.

Mr Decol said the various acts had a significant meaning behind them which conveyed the adversity of life.

He said the seed act was meant to be absurd because you had to harvest something grown and replanted.

Likewise the mask act which expressed the value of uniqueness, as imitating someone will only result in losing one's self.

According to him, the biggest challenge of being a mime is a loud crowd who may not be enjoying the show.

However he commended the crowd present at the ICT Centre for its support and was certain the show was enjoyed.
