PRIMAL

A DEVISED PIECE
Conceived by PAMELA RECKAMP
Developed by SATE

PRIMAL explores the fundamental wants, needs and responses that have existed from the beginning of time for humanity. Told through the structure of Viewpoints (a movement-based actor training method created by Anne Bogart and Tina Landau), and loosely based on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, PRIMAL uses spoken text, multimedia, and music to create a progression of physical, vocal and emotional pictures which represents everyone’s desire to reach their full potential, from the most basic needs of food and shelter, to the peak – a desire for self-actualization and transcendence.
