Is there any actual research or studies done on the psychic ability of animals?
I’m doing a paper on this and need sources.

The burden of proof is on those that make the claims. The is no research on such things until someone provides the evidence. That is the way science works, prove first then find out why. Animals are not exactly reliable sources to get data from and most are not self aware. Put a mirror in front and many would go crazy.

There have been wild claims of such ability. None has ever been demonstrated. There’s a lot of bogus information on the Net about the topic.

How to play a twin oracle/psychic, for a comedy play/drama?
Its based on commedia’dell arte but with about 20 of us, so we created more characters. I play one of the twin oracle/psychics, one is happy and one is sad, and make predictions likewise. We have created them to be semi-greedy such as saying there time is up just when its getting good and overcharging richer clients.
Also they are almost fake. There predictions are right, but its done with real playing cards not tarrot, and cootie catchers and so to the audience its more funny.
So basically ive tried reasearching comedic psychics and trying to gather a voice , but ive had no luck.
So if you have an suggestions PLEASE, just go for it 🙂
eg. voice, walk, costume, mask, diolouge.
PS. this is mostly an improv drama.!

you can go in a lot of different directions with this but the most important is to make sure both of you are on the same page as far as characterization is concerned. because you are twins, your source is the same even if your intentions go in different directions.
you could try developing your twins from an original commedia character…there are a bunch. you can take a basic trait, like capitano, and base it off of that. any character thru commedia can be used to your advantage you simply have to justify everything.
or you can go in a modern direction. do something off color like jim and tammy faye baker or someone else in contemporary history that epotomizes your characters.
you could also base them off of an ideal in our culture that has the same characteristics as well. the stock market…someone from gossip girl…genetic scientists that want to clone humans…keep the idea of fortune tellers, just make it more subjective so that you keep the details you’ve already created but define the physical. THEN you can attack the physicalization and vocalization of the characters. i feel that getting all the background info on your character is the way to find the voice. if you have all of the answers to the characters already, the voice comes naturally.
is your director involved? honestly, this is his/her job. you are in charge of the interpretation, they are in charge of the story and the way in which it is told. regardless of whether or not it’s an improved script, the director’s job is to maintain the story. if you just go out there and grab a random character and then it totally sticks out during the show story-wise, costume-wise, intent-wise, then the story is lost. and the only job that we HAVE to do in the realm of theatre is to tell the story. get on the same page with your director. brainstorm with your partner about what you two would like to explore and then take it to the director and see what he, out of the options you give him, he agrees with.
that all being said…two valley girl would be fun….
