Greetings from New York City

Hello mime lovers,


In case I have not met you in person, my name is Haruka Moriyama. I am a faculty member of The Goldston Moriyama Institute for Mime. I am originally from Japan and currently live in New York City, where I teach, create, practice, and perform. I have studied under Gregg Goldston for over a decade, whom I trust as my mentor, teacher and the closest friend on earth.


Mime is such a magical art form with depth of an ocean. Most essential parts that create its mesmerizing texture of movements and stunning effects of acting are hidden and hard to describe to others. Here I am, always impressed by new findings in this art form, thought it was important for someone like me to at least write about this accumulated knowledge I learned from and witnessed with Gregg.


It is best if we could meet you in person sometime in the future. But for now, I sincerely hope that my effort and passion to write this information will help you pursue your career, protect and grow richer this unique and beautiful art form, and bond our international mime community closer than ever.
