More About Our School

Founded in 1972 by Sigfrido Aguilar, Mexican Mime-Clown, Creator and Director, the Studio has since established itself as both a center of contemporary mime/clown in North America and Latin America and an umbrella organization dedicated to the promotion of popular theatre arts throughout Mexico.



Since 1972, the Research Studio has been evolving as a multifunctional and international center dedicated to:
· The professional formation of the clown, the modern mime and the physical actor via a series of specified courses, national and international workshops and related festivals.
· The evolution of an audience/community by way of a continuous series of cultural events in our Teatro Tanque -- La Valenciana.

Through continuous and innovative work, the Estudio Búsqueda de Pantomima-Teatro A.C. has emerged as a nucleus of contemporary popular theatre in the Americas. Its unique professional training program draws students from around the world. The Studio cosponsors the annual National Encounter & International Festival of Contemporary Mime in Mexico and is the home of Lunarte, Comediantes Pantomima-Teatro, a company which often represents Mexico in international festivals and cultural events.

We are associated with State University of New York (SUNY) at Potsdam.
