We need your help to spread the word and support our crowdfunder to reshoot a film of Two Legged Animal.
You can see Ziggy talk about the campaign and the show below or head on over to Indiegogo to check out the project page for Two Legged Animal.
About Two Legged Animal
We had a really beautiful show that was made over a whole year. Two Legged Animal was Ziggy’s first full length performance produced by Ausform, the show previewed at the Wickham Theatre in February 2015 for one night only to a completely sold out audience. Their reaction was wonderful and we were incredibly proud.
Sadly the video that we commissioned of the show for booking purposes got corrupted and all we have is still photography. The problem is that the show is so unique and as this was first work with Ziggy as a lead artist; we are now unable to obtain bookings for what is a great show.
If you could donate a little (or a little bit more!) to help us remount the show in order to document it you’d help to secure the future of a show which we have worked on for so long & help to bring it to hundreds of audiences in the UK and beyond.

We got some wonderful feedback from our audience in Bristol about the Two Legged Animal preview in February. We are really excited about the potential of the show and can’t wait to get it back out again in the near future. Here’s a little peak into what people said about the show:
I really enjoyed the wild feral-ness of it
I couldn’t believe how wonderfully Ziggy’s performance made it feel there was a horse with us. I cried in the first 10 minutes! Thank you so much for this thoughtful & heart-filled show.
Never seen anything like it before!
I liked the simple scenery of the leaves and lighting.
And about the partnership between Ziggy’s movement & Rowan’s music:
The music made a real partnership – very gentle and atmospheric.
You both synced up beautifully – fearless and powerful – the audience went with you willingly.
Also from all the forms filled out the most common words were:
Which we’re incredibly proud of – keep your eyes peeled for the next time that Two Legged Animal will be performed!
February seems like quite a while away now that spring is starting to creep in the odd open window and the mornings where a jumper is a better choice than a winter coat. But in actual fact February was pretty jam-packed with performance including the amazing In Between Time festival, VOLT #5 and, of course, Two LeggedAnimal by Ziggy.
With the risk of potentially making the Ausform website the Paul Samuel White fan page we are so pleased to share his beautiful images for Two Legged Animal by Ziggy at the Wickham Theatre in Febuary 2015. We invite you to step back into the arena and remember the performance with these photographs:
