My name is Oliver Pollak. I am a mime.
Since two decades I am "married" now to ’mime corporel dramatique‘.
My formation in physical theatre led me first one year to the Commedia School of Copenhagen (Lecoq-style), then a year to Paris to the great Master Marcel Marceau and finally 6 very intensive years of apprenticeship at the école de mime corporel dramatique London. Graduated with diploma, continued in the post-graduate program and the theatre company ‘ Théâtre de l'Ange Fou ’.
There, under the very devoted and stringent direction of Corinne Soum and Steven Wasson (the last two longstanding assistants of Etienne Decroux) I gained my substantiated and profound knowledge in this art form. It was here, where my fascination for the "strict doctrine" commenced, it's manifold possibilities of expression and it's inherent beauty.
