Pythagorean Trio

Dancers Karl Schaffer, Saki, and Laurel Shastri perform a mathematical romp through dance, including combinatoric and rhythmic play with boxes, bottles and vaudevillian hats and a "Dance from the Book". Karl is co-founder with Erik Stern of the Dr. Schaffer and Mr. Stern Dance Ensemble, which has been revealing the surprising connections between mathematics and dance for years through highly physical, engaging choreography peppered with their unique brand of humor and entertaining audience interactions.


Tim and Tanya Chartier’s mime combines masks, puppetry, and classical mime illusions into a distinctive style that they have performed throughout the United States and in national and international settings.
The Chartiers have trained at Le Centre du Silence mime school, the Dell’Arte School of International Physical Theater and with the world-renowned mime artist Marcel Marceau.
