Advice

I've seen a lot of Critics' Choices in Pantomime and they're more challenging than you think.

 

Start with a concept, make a music choice - and then build your performance WITH the music.  It sounds weird, but this is the closest Thespian competitions come to pure Dance.  It's another universe where you can play with time and space, and enter the world of dreams.

 

If you've had my class - use EVERYTHING we've learned.  And come up with a story which can really only be told using mime - one where sound is not appropriate, as opposed to one where you're just 'playing charades.'
