About Me

"Master of mime Silent Rocco lives and breathes his characters, mesmerizing the audience with a silent art form well beyond antiquated mime clichés." - Preston City Guild Festival, UK


  • I shut up. You listen.
    L F X

    I’m a professional and passionate mime artist, being dedicated to this art form since I was 14. Mostly self-educated, I moved to Berlin in 2003 to study mime at a theatre school. Since then I’ve been creating numerous acts and shows, performing in China, Colombia, Thailand, India, Qatar, Egypt, Russia, Iraq, Israel, Korea and all over Europe. I'm looking forward to continue this exciting journey, celebrating the magic of modern mime on small and big stages around the world, either with my own creations or as a guest performer in national and international theatre, variety and circus productions.

Menschine roaming the streets of Odense, Denmark during the H.C. Andersen Festivals (review)

End of August, my human robots were invited to the renowned H.C. Andersen Festivals in Odense, Denmark.

A journalist stumbled upon our futuristic performance and wrote this beautiful review:

Thank you, Wismar!

The Greatest Thing at boulevART festival in Wismar, Germany

Wismar, we love you! After performing six lovely shows at the international street theatre festival boulevART in Hanseatic City of Wismar, Germany we are super tired and endlessly happy. Miss Walker and I rarely had such wonderful spectators and listeners. On top of that, a brilliant organization by Lebenshilfe Kunst und Kultur, a great local helper team, and fantastic weather. We couldn’t have wished for more and hope to be back in beautiful Wismar soon! ❤️
