Originating in ancient Greece, mimes (or pantomimes) are people who act out a story by moving their body. This is done without the use of speech, so in a way, it is similar to interpretive dance.
Some popular miming actions are rope-climbing, "trapped in the box", the invisible wall, and leaning on air.
I went to the theater yesterday to watch the mime performance.

mimes are a bunch of cock smoking bastards! whoever decided that we should pay people to say nothing and go around annoying people should have a hot poker shoved up their ass!
when the mime tried to pull that "i'm stuck in a box shit" i kicked him directly in the testicles.

A form of art, similar to Unmade Bed by Tracy Emin. However, Tracy gets paid shedloads for her shite, whereas mime artists are rightly shunned.
On the Discworld, there is a city called Ankh-Morpork which is free from mime artists. They are chained over the scorpion pit, upside down, with the ever-helpful phrase "Learn Thee Words" emblazoned across the walls.
