Mime is a type of way of acting. The actor cant talk and they don’t use a lot of
props. Mimes communicate by using face expression and body language. Mime
was used to communicate what the primitive people needed or wanted.

a part of the miracle, mystery and morality plays, which were first, started in
the twelfth century in the regions of France, Germany, Britain and throughout
Europe.

Mime was influenced in drama in many ways but mostly because they started
using it as a way of acting and acting usually contains drama to make it more

Mime effected people who weren’t comfortable using words to explain what they
want and that helped them and made them happier and made their lives easier.
