On psychic and cellular levels, what exactly occurs when a human interacts with another species? Despite our growing knowledge of biology and natural history, the answer remains something of a mystery. The artists and scientists participating in this evening invite us to consider other species through a variety of lenses - mystical, scientific, and philosophical - and to formulate our own approaches to the animal "other." In so doing, they challenge us to grapple with the existential question, 'How should we conceive of and conduct our relationships with other species, and also with one another?'
