Primate Performance – Gorillas & Gibbons with Sarah Perry

Sunday 14th October 2018,  11-2pm at Sadler’s Wells  

To join this workshop you must have attended one of our Intro to Creature Performance workshops. Next Intro workshop 29th July 2018. 

This workshop is the first in a series of Primate Performance workshops developed by Sarah Perry. Sarah has been working closely with ZSL, Zoologists and Primate specialists to research and develop this series of workshops especially for the performance industry. The workshop is open to Actors, Animators, MoCap Performers and all who are interested in Creature Studies & Performance. We will look at the specific habits, behaviourisms, social interactions, physical attributes and dynamic qualities of both Gorillas & Gibbons, we shall also consider the breath patterns and sounds that these primates make too. We shall then consider how we may need to adapt some of these qualities to fit our human form, discussing what we could do with regards to special and visual effects to assist a more authentic performance. 

Sarah is keen to spread the word on our appreciation of our Animal Planet. This workshop is in honour of International Gibbon Day 24th October 2018.
