Bulgarian mime performs to beat own Guinness record
Every single news section should have a bit of the absurd. Keeping in line with this belief, I have decided to cover the famous and powerful art of mimes.
Popular Bulgarian mime artist Alexander Iliev is set to smash his own Guinness record by staging a 26-hour performance. The mime marathon includes hundreds of different pantomime pieces, dances of Eastern European countries, clown sketches, circus acts and variety tricks, as well as dances with original national masks from the repertoire of the greatest mime masters in the world.
