As you are aware, Tim does a funny and often poignant show that showcases his skills in mime, music, ventriloquism and comedy roller skating. To do a show like his requires insights into many disciplines including voice, gesture, songwriting, and puppetry, to name a few. He holds a bachelor's degree in fine arts, exhibits painting and sculpture, is a carpenter and an architect.
With all these interests and experience Tim Settimi is more than a performer: he is a resource.
His appearance on your campus can be an opportunity to share his knowledge and energy with your students and community.
More than Magic
A lecture-demonstration & mime insights.
A thorough examination of the tools and techniques of the trade including gesture, illusionary objects, space and mass, character building and movement. An hour plus 'show and tell' of how mime works. It's fun, it's fascinating, it's relevent and it adapts to any age group or level of interest.
An hour to a day of exploring mime first hand. Dress comfortably and be prepared for a workout.
Q & A is encouraged in any session.
"He gave one of the most effectively literate
and organized lecture demonstrations I've ever experienced.
Both my classes and I learned a great deal from his rich
presentation. I want to express our appreciation to you
for bringing such a man of high academic and performance
activity to our classrooms."

"There are only a few times when a school finds
an artist who shares himself.... Performing in our
Coffeehouse, roaming the cafeterias, teaching theater
classes are only a begining, you visited high schools
and grade schools....Your work was exceptional.... You are
the person who exemplifies our artist / expert in residence program."
