Vine to Vine

At the San Diego Zoo, we saw a lot of amazing animals and birds but towards the end of a very long day, this was one of my very favorite things. Can you spot her?

How about now? Here she is backed up against her friend.
The living vines moved in such a non-human way that it was first odd, then beautiful, sensual, and just unique.

They moved slowly and deliberately, just like the vines they were representing.

The green makeup was really well done. I couldn't figure out how the costumes were constructed, lots of faux grapevine, and stilts for both arms and legs.

I wish I'd taken a video myself, but I was so entranced I didn't think to at the time. Here's one that I found on YouTube:

Performance art at the zoo! Cool!
