Famous Japanese mime artist Iimuro Naoki will put on shows in Hanoi and the ancient capital city of Hue in June, according to the Japan Foundation.

The solo performances by Iimuro Naoki, called ‘A Time for pantomime’ will give Vietnamese audiences a new perspective on this popular silent art.

Using only body language and range of radically different facial expressions, Iimuro Naoki not only wants to entertain his audiences with laughter, but tell them stories of ordinary life using this visual medium.

Iimuro Naoki has toured the world and won a number of Japanese and international prizes./.
