“Don’t even think in your own language. English, all the time!”
Following a hugely successful run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival, Breach Theatre’s Tank now comes to HOME, Manchester from 4 to 6 May, as part of a 2017 UK tour.
In 1965, an American scientist lived with a dolphin for 10 weeks to try and teach him to speak English – part of the Dolphin House experiments, a NASA-funded research project into human-animal communication.
Condemned by the wider scientific community as an elaborate circus trick, researcher Margaret Lovatt’s lessons with Peter remain a highly controversial episode in the space race between the two superpowers at the height of the Cold War.
Breach’s Fringe First Award-winning Tank rips this history apart to explore the difficulties of bridging cultural divides, the politics behind the stories we tell, and what happens when you inject a dolphin with LSD.
