Do you ever go to the zoo and end up watching the monkeys for a long time … or any animal for that’s being really playful or putting on a show for the audience?! Zoo animals have character; they are watched throughout the day; they are used to being on show. These are all things we as performers work to get used to. So, why don’t we learn from the animals?
You can learn a lot about performance by watching animals! Try these three ideas to unleash your inner animal actor:
1. Watch the animal actors show at Universal Studios in California or just watch this video!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG-2yv8UCk4
2. Go to the zoo and watch the animals! See if you can spot any animals that seem to be performing.
3. If you have a pet watch it, play with it, and learn from it! If you don’t have a pet, you can go to the park or public area to watch animals and pets.
Enjoy this alone, with a friend or partner, or with your whole family! 🙂
