Take a walk at night through Downtown Disney here at Walt Disney World Resort and you might notice a statue of a purple witch or a golden couple in “mad” top hats – statues you could swear weren’t there the last time you passed. The sculptures look amazingly real and if you get close enough, they just might spring to life.
These “Living Statues” were created by Nicolas J., a world-renowned mime who studied with Marcel Marceau. After appearing in Monte Carlo and across Europe, The Living Statues and World Gate Entertainment came to Walt Disney World Resort. (Disney fans may remember them from the France and Italy Pavilions of Epcot). These days, you’ll find The Living Statues not far from Paradiso 37 and Curl by Sammy Duvall.
