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!
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! 🙂
