UNI Interpreters Theatre presents "Animal Rites"

UNI Interpreters Theatre presents "Animal Rites"

Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 7:30 pm

ANIMAL RITES is a one-man show, by guest artist, LSU's Christopher Collins, Ph.D., that brings the relationship between human and nonhuman animals to the forefront. ANIMAL RITES, based on the text by Cary Wolfe, weaves together prose, poetry, and dramatic monologues in an attempt to highlight the way we discuss, theorize and perform our relationship to nonhuman animals. The show uses posthumanist theory to provide a “biting” social commentary on our animal rituals and their subsequent environmental impacts. If you have ever wondered, “why do people dress up their dogs?” you may just find ANIMAL RITES perfect for your investigative appetite.
