Corporeal Mime: The Actor's Art of Movement
"The art of stage developed from mime, which is the representation of inner movements by visible outer motions. Mime is the stem of the tree that has branched into dance and drama... It is to be expected that mime, as expressive of effort and a fundamental creative activity of man, will, after its long period of neglect, become once more an important factor of civilized progress, when its real sense and meaning have been reacquired.”
- Rudolf Laban (1878-1958)

"I had the great pleasure of meeting Giuseppe Condello about 5 years ago, of course his reputation, his talent and his incredible dedication to excellence were attributes that I had known about for many years. So, it was a great delight that in meeting him I discovered that as well as being an incredible artist, Giuseppe is an extremely generous man that wants to share his art form.
Two seasons ago we at SCD brought him into the studio to teach a workshop. We did not know if it would be a match or whether the students would embrace the work. It was almost simultaneous, as Giuseppe was leaving the building that students were standing in our office wanting to know if it were possible to work with Giuseppe again. Last season the one workshop escalated to a full week.
When our 3 Fourth Year students heard that they might be involved in a project with Giuseppe they were thrilled.
I do believe this project (Mechanicians) has so many important layers, starting with students being able to work with a legend, a legacy that no one else can offer and an opportunity to do some meaningful work at a time when so little work is available or being done, during very difficult and dark times.
I was thrilled to be asked to be part of this project. I do believe as well as bringing my expertise to the project this will be an environment where I will learn. What an amazing gift after my long journey in this art form that there is still room (and a deep desire) to enter into projects where I can continue to be challenged, to learn and to grow...a true gift."

"Giuseppe Condello is a recognized and valued senior artist in Manitoba. He has had a long, rich career here in Manitoba, nationally and internationally. I believe that his plan to document and share his knowledge and experience while exploring emerging expressions of corporeal mime through new technologies truly reflects his artistic practice. I am struck by Giuseppe’s capacity to adapt and expand his art practice as the occasion arose throughout his career. That he would seek to further intertwine his passion for movement and acting with his love of teaching into a two-part work (documentary and installation) presents a unique opportunity for mature reflection even as Giuseppe continues to stretch and reshape his creative expression."

“I found my mime practice and
understanding of the technique
(especially from an actorly point of
view) in this week-long “Artist in
Residence” with you, has
increased in depth and breadth.
And for that, I am truly grateful.”
