“Quirky”, “bizarre comedy”, “displays of virtuosity” – this is how the New York Times calls the work of Gregg Goldston.
In 1975, Gregg Goldston saw a performance by Marcel Marceau and immediately began his pursuit of the art of mime. Born in Los Angeles, Gregg first trained under Richmond Shepard in Hollywood, then moved to Salt Lake City. By 1979, he had written and produced three two-hour solo performances, opened his own mime studio, and began touring his show throughout the Western States of the USA. In 1980, the Ohio Arts Council encouraged Gregg to relocate his Mime Foundation and School for Mimes to Ohio. From 1980 forward, Gregg continued to his “One-Mime Show” across the United States and later Internationally. In 1986, he created “The Invisible People,” a 7-member mime company that toured Nationally and Internationally until 1997.
In 1980, he founded The Goldston School for Mimes Summer Intensive in Ohio. The School hosted Five Two-Week Summer Seminars by the legendary Marcel Marceau, who stated to the press: “Goldston is creating the first generation of American Mimes.” In 2000, Gregg was an Assistant Performer to Marcel Marceau during his 2000 to 2002 USA tours. In 2004, Goldston performed lead roles during a week of the final performances of the Marcel Marceau Nouvelle Compagnie de Mimodrame in the USA.
In 2000, Gregg moved to New York City. He presented his performance and continued to teach Mime and Comedy at his NY Mime Studio. In 2008, Gregg Goldston created “The School of Modern Mime” Summer Intensive in Warsaw, Poland. In 2013, Goldston and Haruka Moriyama created “The Goldston Moriyama Mime Intensive” and staged a Two-Week Intensive in Rome, and in 2014, they held a second Intensive in Berlin, Germany.
Currently, he is living in New York City and teaching his “MimeXcel” Five Stage 6-Week Zoom program throughout the year. For information go to https://www.goldmime.com/mimexcel or Get-Gregga on Facebook.
