Yoga at the Art Gallery of Western Australia and Aggie the robot!

The Urban Sketchers Perth planned meet up at Elizabeth Quay was moved to inside the Art Gallery of Western Australia this morning because it was very wet, windy and cold (Elizabeth Quay is very exposed). One thing we weren’t expecting was to find a contemporary dance company (Co3) performing warm up yoga in the main foyer prior to an actual dance performance. They were of course very fit, supple and graceful, my sketches don’t show how lithe they actually were….I thought sketching them at yoga would be easy because they would move slowly…but no…they moved through all the moves very quickly, flowing from one to another until savasana at the end.

This little sketch is of Aggie the AGWA robot. It walks around the gallery room and interacts with the human guide as part of a gallery tour aimed mostly at children. A bit under a meter tall it can dance, wave it’s arms and sing/talk to the audience (controlled by one of the staff)
