O. Festival x WORM present Firma MES / Lindertje Mans (NL)
A one-woman poultry opera

60% of all birds on Earth are chicken. Time to take a closer look.

Lindertje: “I want to have a conversation with an animal that has always surrounded me, growing up on the countryside: the chicken. I feel like we have a lot in common: we’re both female, people sometimes laugh at us, and underestimate us sometimes: people call us chicks. At the same time I am part of a species that represses and exploits the chicken. Together with the chicken I want to explore our position. Can I speak chicken language? And what does the chicken tell me? Are we part of a multi-species sisterhood?”

Research question: Can I have a conversation with a chicken?
