Manuela Infante Estado Vegetal N.Y. Premiere

May 02 Through May 03 | Thu | $25
View Website

Estado Vegetal (Vegetative State) is an exuberant and polyphonic one-woman show by playwright/director Manuela Infante, one of the most prolific voices in contemporary Chilean and Latin American theater. Created by an all-woman team and inspired by the revolutionary thinking of philosopher Michael Marder and neurobiologist Stefano Mancuso, the individual stories of Estado Vegetal branch out from a motorcyclist's collision with a tree and proceed to imagine a scenario in which plants decide to reclaim their kingdom. Probing the concepts of plant intelligence and communication, the work examines the impossibility of dialogue between humans and plants and proposes a post-anthropocentric theater.
