mia timpano is fundraising for a live show
Our lovely assistant editor Mia Timpano is making a show about the science of conversation.
It’s not often that we toot our own horns around these parts, but we reckon it’s pretty justified this time, so: TOOT, TOOT! Our lovely assistant editor Mia Timpano has taken her love of words off the written page (and screen), creating a comedy show that’s all about the science of conversation.
To quote the lady herself: “I’m diving deep into the science of how humans talk, the rules that force us to talk the way we do, and the consequences of flouting the maxims.” Expect to laugh a lot and learn even more – and probably come away with some top-notch banter, too.
The show will unfold on a cosy stage in Melbourne later this year, but in the meantime, Mia and her wee team have set up a Pozible page where you can lend a hand (or dollar, as it were). Keep an eye on Mia's Facebook and Instagram for updates, and they’ll see you, oh, around about September, apparently.
Sweet snap by the one and only Bri Hammond.
