Street Miming

There are dozens of Living Sculptures in Palma’s streets and squares, ready for donations from the passers-by and in the main, from tourists. You may have seen some of these street mime artists yourself; there is a Charley Chaplin, a Flamenco dancer, a Zorro swordsman, a levitating China man, a Dracula figure and there are lots, lots more. Some of the mime artists are incredibly clever in their presentation, some are simply funny, in a good way, some are ever so intricate in their act. The best living sculpture I’ve seen in a long time is one I came across last Saturday (see photo). The act resembled a sculpture set in stone which came to life to play the stone lyre. The act included a fountain with running water and recorded lyre music activated only for the duration of the coming-to-life. Incredible. It was like a dance without any movement.

I am sorry to have to say that I was so busy snapping away that I completely forgot to offer my pennies. I’ll catch up with him sometime this week and pay my dues, promise.

The photo was taken in Palma, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 16th, 2012. The time was 13:27:13.
