This text testifies to the pedagogy of Etienne Decroux and, in particular, to his lessons in the early 1970s in the blue basement of his house on the outskirts of Paris. The author presents peculiarities of the teaching of mime with emphasis on Decroux’s theatrical improvisation lessons taught every Friday night, and discusses the ambiguities and the power of Decroux’s thought and contributions to contemporary theatre, especially to acting pedagogy.
