Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Marcel Marceau

A million inferior imitators have tended to affect our memory of the world's only great mime, Marcel Marceau who died this time last year.

When Marceau was 16, his father was murdered in Auschwitz, and he and his brother changed their surnames to hide their Jewish origins and fought in the French resistance. Amongst other things, they changed the ages on the identity cards of scores of French youths, both Jews and non-Jews, to save them from labour and death camps

Marceau quotes: "I have spent more than half a lifetime trying to express the tragic moment."

"It's good to shut up sometimes."
