On Animals confronts the human-centric nature of performance by inviting contributions on: interspecies relations in theatrical acts, historiography of anomalous events such as bear baiting and flea circuses, architectures of animal exhibition, technologies of new nature and animal relations to cyborg cultures, the second nature of mimesis, the animal iconography of non-western expressive forms, animal acoustics and vocal experiment, post-human philosophies and performance of animal rites and rights. The field is as open as our ability to think and practise performance beyond the human.
