ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Pantomime is when someone tells a story or expresses an idea using only their body and facial expressions, without speaking any words. Just like how Mimes do, sometimes wear white face paint and black clothes to make it easier for people to watch them. It’s like playing a game of charades without using any words. Sometimes other people might try to guess what the person is trying to express by watching their body movements and facial expressions. It’s a way to communicate without talking!
