1. the theatrical technique of expressing an idea or mood or portraying a character entirely by gesture and bodily movement without the use of words

3. a dramatic presentation using such a technique
4. (in the classical theatre)

5. to express (an idea) in actions or gestures without speech
6. (of singers or musicians) to perform as if singing (a song) or playing (a piece of music) that is actually pre-recorded

In the face of strangers
They mime their knowledge
Or resort to crude Latin

In an attempt at Esperanto
