SINGAPORE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF ARTS 2017 Vegetative State [Asia-Pacific Premiere]
September 1, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00pm, repeating until September 4, 2017
Vegetative State is a polyphonic, ramified and exuberant performance. Its main character is a woman, who is not an individual, but a crowd, a swarm. This is not animal work; it is fascinating vegetable work created by the dynamic Chilean star director Manuela Infante, with the amazingly expressive actress Marcela Salinas.
Based on the revolutionary thinking of plant philosopher Michael Marder and plant neurobiologists like Stefano Mancuso, Vegetative State probes the ways in which new concepts of the plant kingdom – from plant intelligence to vegetative soul to plant communication – can transform us. If we accept that plants have other ways of thinking, feeling, communicating, being intelligent and conscious, having another sense of time, perhaps we might see anew our own sense of thinking, feeling, communicating, awareness and being.
