Despite all my rage I am still just a mime in a cage
The Angry Mime started all the way back in 2000 in a small warehouse space in Newstead. It was started as a performance space for various disciplines including clown, mask, dance, vaudeville, puppetry and anything experimental. The original Angry Mime was founded by Andrew Cory, Tony Kishawi, Julieanne Hanson and Nigel Pearn. After its first year, the performance night moved to Brisbane Powerhouse where it ran for 5 years as a monthly event in the Stores Building.

After a long period of indefinite hiatus, the event like no other returned in 2017 at its new home in the East Brisbane Bowls Club. The first couple of return shows both sold out, and this next one will no doubt do the same. Andrew Cory describes it as "A contemporary variety night with artists trying out their craft. Expect anything from clown to spoken word to dance to stand up!".

This month's line-up includes Ira Seidenstein (Cirque du Soliel), Marianna Joslin, Emily Vascotto and many more.

If an angry mime falls in the forest, will it make a sound?

The Angry Mime personifies the best of Brisbane's performing artists. Experimentation, humour, and mediums that push the boundaries of expectation delivered to a supportive audience. It allows performers to take risks that they may otherwise not, creating a more interesting show than other spaces allow.

It's easy to get tired of the same old thing, so do yourself a favour and get along to the next Angry Mime night in order to be part of something special.
