“Yes, along with my performances in Venezuela, Macedonia etc. I still teach and write books” – Was the answer of the 84 year old, Adam Darius, when I first contacted him a half year ago.
Adam Darius is not only a phenomenal mime artist and ballet dancer who has performed in 87 countries, but also a great choreographer, playwright, and author of 17 books, let alone one of the best coaches I have ever come across.
With an old wise soul, a sharp mind and movements that even some 20 year olds can’t pull off, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I met Adam the first time.
He coaches me in expressing myself through singing, acting, speaking, dancing as well as writing and never fails to notice if I’m not “fully in the zone”.
Even though it requires a lot of energy and focus, I always seem to gain more than I lose after each session.
How he came to live in Finland 19 years ago is a long story, but I’m definitely not the only one who realized what a guru we have just around the corner. Along with his own continuing performances he has many projects going on as well as students and friends around him.
Our last session was accompanied by Eero Heinonen, the bass player of the well known band “The Rasmus”, who is in the process of making a documentary featuring Adam’s career.
So far he has filmed in Finland, USA as well as in Russia. It is a true pleasure to be a part of it, and as soon as I get info about the release date I will keep you updated!

Ps. Eero was very nice to work with and the following day we caught up for some song writing.
