Estado Vegetal (Vegetative State) is a riveting one-woman show by 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 in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts, the Multnomah County Cultural Coalition and Oregon Cultural Trust.
