This is a physical theatre workshop for actors that will explore character through the observation, mimicry and embodiment of animals. How can animals inform us physically and vocally to create character? Can animals inform us how to play? We will explore the evolution of a character from its quadrupedal beginnings to its bipedal end! In this three-hour workshop you will leave with strategies and techniques to use in your future work!

“Feetham’s greatest achievement is his step-by-step depiction of Actaeon turning into a stag, registering the horror as horns sprout from his head, his hands turn to hooves, his face lengthens, he loses his voice and he can no longer stand on two feet.” -Stage Door, Christopher Hoile
