Editorial Reviews

Product Description

First issued by Caedmon Records in 1971, this conversation on mime, recorded by Marcel Marceau and the American writer William Fifield, is an in-depth look at Marceau's art.

In this recording, Marcel Marceau traces the history of mime and discusses his own role in its renewed popularity. Calling mime the art of "making the invisible visible," he shares how he developed his signature character, Bip, and began performing all around the world, a tour de force career that has lasted for more than 50 years. He speaks with eloquence about the purpose of his art, which, he says, is to show how life is. And branching off to his interests and experiences off the stage, he talks about his paintings, his belief in the universality of man, and his life during World War II, when he took part in the French Resistance and also had to hide from the Gestapo because his father was Jewish.

Digitally remastered, "Marcel Marceau Speaks" was released again in October 2000 by Times Two Audio, a division of the Times Two Publishing Company. The company is reissuing the books and recordings of William Fifield as part of The William Fifield Collection, a digital archive of the writer's work.


"These conversations with Marceau cannot but deepen people's appreciation and understanding of his art." -- Clive Barnes, theater and dance critic

Format:Audio CD
Who knew mimes had so much to say? I can see why he doesn't talk for a living...what an accent! Is that guy Canadian?

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected August 12, 2009
By D. Dias
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was expecting a very low quality sound since it was actually recorded in the 70's. But I was surprised by it.

It's interesting to hear Marceau talking about the way he creates a piece and where his philosophy comes from.
