Dolphins, ships and other vessels

In this performance reading, artist duo Bambitchell continue their exploration of the legal frameworks that govern non-human animals and objects, moving from the territorial jurisdictions explored in their film Bugs & Beasts Before the Law (2019), to the legal realm of the sea. Dolphins, ships and other vessels is a polyvocal narrative that spans bodies of water. Stretching from Te Moana-o-Raukawa, to the South China Sea, the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and the Clyde and Kaniatarowanenneh Rivers, the narrative traces the disappearance and reappearance of a dolphin, the reincarnations of ships, and the embodiments of Jinn—as vessels, mammals, water, myth, and law.

Performances by Sukaina Kubba & Faraz Anoushahpour. Sound Design by Richy Carey.
