Estado Vegetal (Vegetal State)
In Spanish with English supertitles
*Post-show talk Friday, April 26 with Craig Epplin, Associate Professor of Spanish in Portland State University’s World Languages and Literature Department.
Estado Vegetal (Vegetative State) is a riveting one-woman show by world renowned Chilean theatre artist Manuela Infante, exploring how new concepts such as plant intelligence, vegetative soul, or plant communication can change human perspectives. Inspired by the revolutionary thinking of philosopher Michael Marder and neurobiologist Stefano Mancuso, the work examines the impossibility of dialog between humans and plants.
This engagement of Manuela Infante is made possible through Southern Exposure: Performing Arts of Latin America, a program of Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, and with the support of the Chilean Ministry of Culture, National Endowment for the Arts, Multnomah County Cultural Coalition, and Oregon Cultural Trust. #MultcoCulturalCo #getsomeculture
