Is it possible to meet an animal - that with its three hearts and eight arms seems almost extraterrestrial - at eye level without depriving it of its fascinatingly different intelligence, without breaking it down into something that is, in the minds of humans, comprehensible and ordinary? In Temple du présent – Solo pour octopus: Film (Solo for an Octopus), which was created in collaboration with the nature and art researchers of ShanjuLab - a laboratory for interspecies performance at the Théâtre Vidy, Lausanne - Stefan Kaegi (Rimini Protokoll) allow the octopus to be the protagonist instead of a mere object of observation and thus radically rethink the hierarchy of the conventional research situation. After the performance, we will talk to Stefan Kaegi and Judith Zagury from ShanjuLab.

18:30: Opening of the Choreographic Convention VII In Other Words: A Future at Volkstheater in the presence of Dr. Brigitte Bierlein.
