"Like a fairy tale" - The 30th International Pantomime Festival  Dresden Summary   The   30 th    International   Pantomime   Festival   Dresden has    ended    with    a    wonderful    closing    ceremony    on November   18.   During   the   ten   days   the   participants and   audience   experienced   an   unprecedented   range of   styles   of   pantomime.   But   also   the   artists,   invited from     all     around     the     world,     were     excited     and overwhelmed   about   this   festival.   "Like   in   a   fairytale," they     felt     as     the     organizing     team     met     every imaginable desire. Highlights   of   the   festival   were   e.g.   the   performance "Pantomix"   by   Csaba   Mehes   from   Hungary,   that   were running   in   cabaret   Breschke   and   Schuch,   brought   the audience   to   laugh,   but   also   repented   contemplative and    thoughtful    moments.    Or    "The    Dustfall"    in    the laboratory   theater   in   the   Dresden   University   of   Fine Arts.      The      excellent      technical      equipment      and remarkable    commitment    of    the    laboratory    theater director    and    his    team    allowed    a    performance    in which   the   audience   enthusiastic   about   MI   MInor .   The combination   of   fine   body   work   and   deep   soul   with   a good   sense   of   humor   made   this   presentation   to   a   big party.   A   festival   like   this   is   not   just   a   collection   of different    performances,    but    an    event    of    artistic development.   Therefore,   the   organizers   were   daring some experiments. For    example    the    gala    evening    that    replaced    the traditional      festival      opening      by      the      in-house ensemble.   Here   the   old   familiar   Ralf   Herzog ,   Rainer König   and   Alf   Mahlo   performed   the   event,   which   was under   the   festival   theme   "The   blossom   of   art"   and presented      to      the      audience      all      facets      of      the pantomime.    It    contained    the    magician    Vito    Lupo, kabuki   performer   Yass   Hakoshima,   the   group   Beat Fanatics   and   Alexey   Mironov ,   who   each   showed   the connection    of    pantomime    to    magic,    to    traditional Japanese   theater,   to   break   dance   and   to   clowning. With   Gregg   Goldston ,   Bodecker   and   Neander ,   Shinya Murayama       four      more      Star      pantomimes      were performing    and    enriched    the    gala    with    their    own, powerful    handwriting.    Among    the    more    than    300 spectators,    many    who    knew    the    festival    from    the times   in   which   it   filled   the   largest   halls   in   Dresden, but    it    also    gave    many    people    an    impressive    first contact to the pantomime. Another    experiment    was    the    integration    of    lecture demonstration    on    Marcel    Marceau.    It    was    clearly observed    that    the    public    was    interested    to    get    a demonstration    of    the    operation,    the    history    and background of the pantomime. With      " Anders "      (different)      and      "Ansichtssache” (matter    of    opinion)    two    complete    new    and    fresh productions   were   in   the   program,   which   were   to   be seized    upon    an    experimental    approach,    and    made the audience interested. The   many   friendships   and   future   collaborations   that were   establishd   during   the   festival   make   us   happy. We   thank   our   many   supporters   who   have   made   all this possible.
At    the    beginning    of    the    '80s    Rainer    Petrovsky,    at that    time    the    head    of    the    "Volkskunstpodium"    in Dresden,   and   the   mime   Ralf   Herzog   had   the   idea   to raise   a   kind   of   pantomime   workshop   to   support   the pantomime    scene    of    Dresden.    Whereas    the    first workshop   was   city   internal   the   second   and   the   third already   had   guests   from   the   district   and   the   region Eastern     Germany.     The     pantomime     workshop     of Dresden   created   an   image   for   itself   in   conscripting the    national    mime    scene    with    some    international participation.     Next     to     Berlin     and     Jena     Dresden became a mime centre of the GDR.
