How to kill a lobster: Capitalising on non-human animal slaughter

A recording of Lourdes Orozco’s one hour talk that explored the increasing presence of non-human animals in contemporary European theatre and performance art and the ethical questions associated with it.

The talk was given on the occasion of the exhibition Interspecies and the 15th edition of ¡Viva! and focused on the work of Argentine theatre director Rodrigo García and his Madrid-based company La Carnicería Teatro (Butchery Theatre).

Lourdes Orozco is Lecturer in Theatre Studies at the University of Leeds
