HYPE! Mimez: A History
Founded in the spring of 1998, HYPE! is America's only award winning collegiate mime troupe based at Tufts University. We write, direct and perform original mime skits set to contemporary music. We have two end-of-semester shows each year, and we also perform at other smaller events on and off campus. HYPE combines cool mime techniques and theatrical staging to (silently) tell stories of all kinds. The genre of our skits ranges from comedy to scary to heartwarming to bizarre to sad, and everything else in between.
