About Fringe Mime and Movement Laboratory
The Fringe Mime and Movement Laboratory (Mime Lab) was formally established in October 1987 by Philip Fok, the first dedicated mime artist in Hong Kong and student of Desmond Jones (who was pupil of Etienne Decroux and Jacques Lecoq).
The early members of Mime Lab were mainly graduates from the elementary and improvement mime courses organized by the extra-mural studies department of The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1986 and the following years. Mime Lab later organised its own training workshops. The Hong Kong Fringe Club has been providing invaluable venue and outreach support (note).
Thanks to the Hong Kong Fringe Club, Mime Lab has been privileged to work with renowned mimes/directors from overseas such as David Glass, Peta Lily and Jongyeoun Yoon.
Over the past 30 years, Mime Lab has been promoting and developing the art of mime in Hong Kong, while exploring how the western mime tradition can be enriched by crossover with Chinese culture. By end 2017, Mime Lab has already given more than 300 indoor and outdoor performances. They are of a great variety in nature - theatrical productions; street performances, in schools and charities, outreach activities with orchestras, and in commercial events. Mime Lab has also performed in the Hong Kong Fringe Festival, the Chuncheon International Mime Festival, the Seoul Fringe Festival, the Taipei Fringe Festival and the Macao Fringe Festival.
Note - The administration, finance and art direction of Mime Lab are independent from Hong Kong Fringe Club.
