KENOSHA, Wis. – During its presidential inauguration weekend, Carthage College has planned a free, family-friendly event that illustrates complex mathematical concepts through an entertaining mime performance.

The public is invited to “Mime-matics” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 19, in the N. E. Tarble Athletic and Recreation Center Field House at the south end of the Carthage campus, 2001 Alford Park Drive.

It features Tim and Tanya Chartier, who have trained in master classes with world-renowned mime artist Marcel Marceau and at Le Centre du Silence mime school. Their show has been seen throughout the nation, as well as in Japan, the Netherlands, South Korea, and Panama.

Tim Chartier is a professor of mathematics and computer science at Davidson College in North Carolina who specializes in data analytics. In 2014, the Mathematics Association of America chose him as its first math ambassador.

His wife, Tanya, is a reading specialist who has taught at the elementary, middle school, and college levels. The couple are special guests of Carthage President John R. Swallow during the weekend celebration.

For more information on the event, visit: www.carthage.edu/mime. A full schedule of public events related to the inauguration will be announced soon.
