Marcel Marceau: 1923 – 2007

Marcel Marceau, the famous French mime, has died. He continued the tradition of silence, body movement and facial expression as an art form:

“…Offstage, he was famously chatty. “Never get a mime talking. He won’t stop,” he once said.”

Of course, it seems highly appropriate that there be a ‘moment of silence’ for Mr Marceau.
