Séverin (as Pierrot, circa 1896)


French pantomime performer who was one of the best-known French Pierrots or mime artists around the turn of the twentieth century.

He studied under the Marseille mime Louis Rouffe (1849-1885), who in turn had studied under Charles Deburau. He worked at Marseilles, then at the Théatre des Funambules in Paris. In his 1929 book, L'Homme Blanc: souvenirs d'un Pierrot, Séverin Caffera describes Rouffe as having created a complete language of gesture.

He died in Sauveterre, Gard, on 10 June 1930 at age 67.
