Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Visser, Lisa
Abstract:

Animals in the Room is a thesis project consisting of written scholarship and a series of performances that investigate communication between human and animal species while
expanding upon concepts of performance art. In Animals in the Room, I discuss human-­‐animal
relationships in the context of contemporary performance art practice, focusing on potential
frameworks, methodologies, and mythologies
contained therein. Animals in the Room explores the ways in which humans and animals collectively
cultivate self-­‐knowledge and connection across the barriers of our species. It is an inquiry
into the removal of these barriers and the absence of division. It explores
the human-­‐animal relationship through research-­‐led performative practice.
