Lydia is a mime performer
She has more than 30 years of experience, using this striking form of bodily expression, called Mime technique.
She finds the expression of the body the most interesting language, by which we unconciously communicate, always. Her fascination is to turn this physical acting into an art form.
In 1991 she co-founded ‘Vitrine Mimetheatre’. Performing demands creativity, it continues to bring joy and playfulness.
She now helps presentors, actors and actresses to delve deeper into their abilities to be expressive on the physical level.
Lydia performs, directs, facilitates private sessions for poets, speakers, teachers and performers.
Lydia is a training actress
Training sessions are concerned with improving communication skills.
Young professionals in a communication course, will be invited to describe a real life experience or a situation where they feel they have dealt with in an unsatisfactory way.
Lydia will then be asked to act out such a case study, to give the participant the opportunity to relive the situation and try a different approach. Thus enabling practice in a safe environment. After the scene, Lydia will give feedback from the perspective of the antagonist.
In so doing the participant receives a deeper insight, into the effect that his or her attitude has on the other, as well as into the motives and considerations of the antagonist.
It is very helpful for the group to watch each other deal with trying situations, also to get tips and honest feedback from their colleagues.
Lydia has trained with doctors, social workers, conductors on trains and trams.
