Anyone Can Mime with Math: Beginning Mime Class

Sundays at 2:30 pm ET (New York)
September 25, October 2, and October 9

Appropriate for ages 10 and up.

(in person)


Want to try your hand at mime?  Join Tim Chartier, professionally trained by Marcel Marceau, in this engaging new three-part series at the intersection of math and the performing arts.  Learn some simple mime illusions that anyone can do: make an invisible wall… then bump right into it.  Pull on an invisible rope… then get pulled right back.  As you become familiar with some basic principles of mime, you’ll also learn how mathematical thinking — for example, envisioning movement through three-dimensional space — can enhance mime performance.  In addition, we’ll explore how mathematical ideas can be introduced and developed further using mime.

Participants should wear comfortable clothing that allows for a range of movement.
