¡Viva! and Interspecies present: How to Kill a Lobster: Capitalising on Non-Human Animal Slaughter

As contemporary artists continue to consider ethics in relation to the role of animals within their work, this one-hour talk will explore the increasing presence of non-human animals in contemporary European theatre and performance art. Addressing issues such as Animal Rights activism, animal representation and reality, Lourdes Orozco will focus on the work of Argentine theatre director Rodrigo García and his Madrid-based company La Carnicería Teatro (Butchery Theatre).

Led by Lourdes Orozco, Lecturer in Theatre Studies at the University of Leeds.
