    tableaux vivants.
    n. pl. tab·leaux vi·vants (t-bl v-vä)

    A scene presented on stage by costumed actors who remain silent and motionless as if in a picture.
    Ah, FF and dictionary.com

    tableaux vivant - as guillame stated but more often seen -when a junky is "nodding" or a beggar sitting on the sidewalk begging in a busy street.
