The Evolution Project is a new approach bringing arts and sciences together to study human movement & anatomy through mask & physical theatre. In this workshop, we will explore the layers of movement present in our bodies today which have developed from species along our evolutionary pathway over the past 385 million years.

Combining aspects of movement reserach, posutral alignment, somatics and animal studies, the masks are used as a framework to experientially explored the layers of evolved movement patterns present in our human bodies. The provide a foundation to explore the changes that have occured in physiology, alongside shifts in the environment and species adaptation.

The workshop is open to all, and is a movement-based approach in exploring evolution.

We will:

– step through the main evolutionary transitions
– explore shifts in the senses
– improvise and find new tools for movement analysis
– discover ways to bring the masks alive
