Depicting Objects - The Key to Creating a Visible Environment

Gregg Goldston in "Loves Me Not"Today, I will write about how to draw the scenery, "Visible Environments" on stage.  The entire subject of “Making the Invisible Environment become Visible” is too large to cover in one article, and before I realized it, I caught myself writing an 8-page article.  Consequently, I decided to make today’s post concentrate on one of the most essential concepts…See More

Chaplin's Innocent Eyes

Gregg Goldston "The Argument"Okay everyone knows who Charlie Chaplin was. Well, even if you have not seen his films... (now I start wondering if there is any teenager reading this...) Marcel Marceau adored Chaplin and he studied Chaplin for many years. That is also a well known story in the world of mime art.   If you have a chance, try to look really closely at Chaplin's innocent eyes and…See More

Breathing Eyes in Acting

In my previous post "Where Do You Look", I wrote about the "Look Away" and how it is projected direction-wise. We use several terms around this subject such as "The Look Away", "The Universal Audience", "The Takes", etc. I recently started using a word "The Moon". "The Moon" to Create Farsighted Eyes:Imagine, you are walking outside at night. You find the gigantic Moon (a hundred times…See More

Bio
Haruka Moriyama was born and raised in Japan where she studied contemporary dance as her central focus during her undergraduate studies. After training in theatre and dance in Japan, she moved to New York City to study at the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center and the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance.

After years of dance performance, she found herself with the desire to find an art that was more expressive than dance. Consequently, in 2000, she discovered mime and immersed herself mime and physical comedy under Gregg Goldston in New York City.

By 2004, her talent and unique understanding of mime led Goldston to invite her to collaborate with him to develop new concepts and technical innovations. For the next several years, they spent countless hours in the studio combining elements of French, Polish and American styles of mime techniques and acting methods. Since 2007, she has served as Goldston's assistant at his New York Studio and in various settings on tours.

Although she attributes Goldston the primary influence on her artistic philosophy and style of performance, she has continued to expand her training with other artists. In 2004 - 2005, she studied at "Le Mime Corporeal Dramatique" with Ivan Bacciocchi in Paris, France. She has also attended The School for Mime Theatre in the USA, working with C. Nicholas Johnson, Rick Wamer and Lorie Heald.

Her performances have led her across several countries since 2003, when she and Kuni Mikami, a jazz pianist created "IMIMENATION" a mime/ jazz piano collaborative performance. They have since toured their show the US, Japan, Portugal, Brunei, the Philippines, Nicaragua, Honduras, Dominican Rep., Puerto Rico, and Australia, where they had an opportunity to perform at the Sydney Opera House. In New York City, she co-founded “The Funny Bones” with Gregg Goldston and Mike Kramer and performed for Lincoln Center's "Meet the Artist" Series for four consecutive seasons.

In 2013, Haruka served as a faculty member at The Goldston Mime Intensive in Rieti, Italy and later formed The Goldston Moriyama Institute for Mime together with Gregg Goldston.
