Best Theatrical Act of The Year 2014 (Finland)
Marc Gassot: Actor of the Year 2015 (Finland)

Dark Side Of The Mime is an audacious, dark and dirty romp that will have Marcel Marceau turning in his grave. Its raunchy humour will take you by surprise.  You will love this new kind of mimical clownery with splatter and porn. Makes you roar with laughter!

A sell-out hit in Finland!

Actor and mime artist Marc Gassot is joined by his accompanist Karl Sinkkonen on keyboards, to bring you this multi award winning late night physical show. Are you bold enough to enter the Dark Side Of The Mime?

  • ‘…mischievous and hilarious…a perfect performance…’
