Talk BECOMING ANIMAL by Flo Fitzgerald-Allsopp ihkv 8: Metamorphosis

Monday 15th april 17:00 - 19:00 BAU Studio

Leading up to the premiere of our new performance 8: METAMORPHOSIS we invited Flo Fitzgerald-Allsopp (master student dramaturgy) to share her research about woman becoming animal in contemporary performance art, and how this metamorphosis of woman and animal can be understood as a feminist act. Although her research concerns woman - instead of men which is the focus in 8: METAMORPHOSIS - it definitely connects with our thinking beyond binary systems, and in terms of evolution and revolution her research advocates for "taking the animal seriously" both in feminist thinking and ecological thinking.
