A new play written, directed, produced & choreopgraphed by Yvonne Gougelet.
Prehistoric Love is an experimental physical-theater piece that takes place 200,000 years ago. No language. Just grunts, gestures and raw emotion. Woman is surviving alone in the jungle. Man finds woman. Woman has what Man wants. Man takes it. Woman uses her wits to persuade Man that he is better off with her alive than dead. They slowly form an instinctual bond and develop what Modern Humans now call love. Two Early Humans questioning and discovering what it means to be Human, what it means to love and their struggles of survival on this vast, vacant Planet Earth. A theatrical experience like you’ve never witnessed before that will leave you questioning your own existence.
Prehistoric Love had its first preview exhibition at the SITE Performance Festival in NYC in March 2011. The SITE Performance Festival was a featured event at Armory Arts Week. Prehistoric Love is currently preparing to travel and perform at Anthropology, Archaeology, Paleontology and Primatology conferences around the World. The cast is also preparing for an experimental educational tour, giving students, professors and experts an exciting opportunity to see actors portray Early Homo-Sapiens in the flesh.
