The update for the website is ready just in time for the start of the autumn tour.
The category SHOWS has been supplemented with the current anniversary program VITAMIMO and the program KLASSISCH!, in which Carlos Martínez shares the stage with the extraordinary pianist Shani Diluka.
The design for the two shows is also new. And like for all the other shows, it was developed by the JoussenKarliczek agency in Schorndorf, Germany.
In 2021, during the compulsory confinement due to the pandemic, Carlos Martínez completed a Master in Non-Verbal Communication at the University of Alicante, with the purpose of studying the scientific approach to his art. He finished this course with a thesis applying the scientific side of nonverbal communication to the world of theatre.
In the first photo you can see Carlos Martínez with his diploma at the headquarters of Fundeun (Universidad of Alicante Enterprise Foundation) with the director Rafael Lafont. The second photo was taken in the University classroom where Professor Javier Torregrosa teaches the Master.
The new Vitamimo program marks a milestone in the life of the actor, celebrating 40 years on stage as a professional mime. In the first part Carlos Martínez presents three stories from his shows «Books without Words», «Mirage» and «Time to Celebrate». In the second half of the program Carlos Martínez removes his white mask and speaks! He will entertain us with the same sense of humor and humanity, timing and surprise he brings to his mime. And for the first time, the audience uses their mobile phones to vote for the pieces to be performed in the second part of the program, making every evening unique. The show premieres on the 05th and 06th of march in the Seelichttheater Wädenswil.
After representing the piece "Creation" almost a thousand times it is still one of my favorites. Perhaps that is why I have received many requests to publish it on social media. Well, I am pleased to announce that "Creation" can now be seen on my YouTube channel. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I do performing it. Saludos, Carlos Martínez P.S. The commentary at the beginning of the video is subtitled in English, German and Spanish.
Like so many other artists, mime actor Carlos Martínez was stopped by the pandemic. So he has decided to explore new digital possibilities, because he wants to reach his audience even in these times.
After a first series of 10 YouTube masterclasses with the title “Mimología” (Mimology), many people showed interest in an online mime course. That is why he has agreed to offer a first ZOOM course, in cooperation with the “Haus der Familie” in Nürtingen (Germany).
In this 90-minute beginners' course, he shows what is important in this performing art. It is the combination of feet, hands and facial expressions that can tell a story (Videotrailer). The feet as an expression of a personality, the hands to represent objects, the face for feelings and thoughts.
This course offers the perfect opportunity to get a first impression of the art of mime and to get to know the Carlos Martínez studying technique. The course is suitable for beginners and advanced learners.

Many of you have shown an interest in getting to know my ways of working in mime. For this reason, I have taped this first chapter for YouTube (*) in this new section entitled “Mimología”. The subject of this first chapter is: How the hand of theory and the hand of practice work together to represent objects.
I look forward to receiving your comments, and I would like to extend warm greetings to all of you. With affection, Carlos Martínez
