Traditionally, a bestiary is a text that pairs scientific observation with mythology to create an immersive and living document that serves as a record of more-than-human species. They offer an evolving version of an animal encyclopedia and also create a space for imagination, fiction, and metaphor to expand our ways of thinking beyond observational boundaries. In form and content, bestiaries entangle science, speculation, and imagination, providing space to explore how the fantastical and the material mingle. In short, a bestiary provides a rhetorical space in which multiple forms of understanding combine to create new ways of knowing. Our panel is a performative reading of a bestiary that embodies a fable placing humans alongside more-than-humans as animals with parallel voices expressing suffering and exhaustion from climate change. Through synesthesia, imagery, sound, lighting, touch, spoken word, and emotion, each vignette brings animals “off the page,” letting loose the voices of belonging and presence, challenging the nature-culture binaries.
