Intro to MoCap & Creature Performance with Sarah Perry

Friday 22nd September 2017, 6.30-9.30pm at Sadler’s Wells.

This workshop is a pre-requisite for auditioning for the Shapes In Motion Creature/Motion Capture Troupe (Auditions run quarterly) and partaking in further Creature/Motion Capture workshops with Shapes in Motion.

This workshop is aimed at actors and physical performers who are willing to have a go at playing with creature performance, with particular emphasis on creating for motion capture. We will look at how the analysis of creature behavior, inspired by Laban Movement Analysis, can inspire physical choices and performance techniques. Many Films and even the TV and Games industries require the actor to create non-human, animalistic and other worldly characters. This class will give you the space to play, create, have fun and explore using games and exercises from which to inspire physical and creative choices. We shall discuss the basic principles of Motion Capture performance and which physical aspects we need to consider when creating with motion capture.
