Paris is all abuzz. The Mime Poetry Slam is returning after a two-year hiatus. “With that much time to prepare,” says event President Monsieur Tibault, “our mimes will have lots to say.” Although the last winner, Mlle. Farine du Ble will not be able to attend do to persistent laryngitis, the contestant spots filled within one hour after opening.
Be sure to reserve your hotel rooms right now or you won’t have a place to stay come the Mime Poetry Slam next April 1.
And now, Mlle. du Ble’s winning poem from 2020.
I think we can agree her poem touched all hearts and that her passionate delivery left everyone speechless.
