The first time I saw Paul Timoney he was standing on a chair in the middle of at least a hundred teenagers pretending to be a talking shoe. I watched as he leant down and a young woman giggled helplessly as he spoke the rhyming words at her. Then with a flamboyant turn of the head he returned his attention to the rest of us. He pulled his jumper over his head and became… the shoe’s other half. This might sound gloriously ridiculous and in a way it was. Paul Timoney is one of Ireland’s finest storytellers, collaborators and all round wonderful people.
You might choke from laughter or get strangled with sadness at a Paul Timoney show.
There are very few guidelines – but he does insist that scans/pictures are sent with as high a resolution as you can muster. You don’t need to identify any children – the show is about simply exploring the strange little places their minds go. All contributors to the show will get to see Paul sparkle in real life for free and bring their friends and family along to one of his fabulous shows (he intends to tour the bejesus out of the project). He unfortunately can’t let anyone in for free to the big fancy Lingo show.
If you want to be part of the magical madness that is Paul Timoney cavorting about a stage. Then get your ideas, poems, bits and bobs and childhood scraps to him now. The email he’s using for this project is [email protected] and submissions are welcomed up until the 25th September. After which you will have missed the Timoney express and have to cry yourself to sleep. For more details check out his blog about the project by clicking here.
