Temple du présent – Solo pour octopus: Film & Talk

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 film, dance, theatre and literature scholar Gabriele Brandstetter talks with Stefan Kaegi (Rimini Protokoll), Judith Zagury and Nathalie Küttel (ShanjuLab) and the audience, with translation by Marie-Christine Baratta-Dragono.
