The Man with No Ear: bioethical issues as a base for fables
Exploration of the Aesopic tradition as it relates to contemporary biotechnology fables. I have used biotechnologies and ‘Post-natural environments’ as the inspiration for a series of four contemporary bio-ethical fables for my recent Doctorate of Creative Arts at the University of Wollongong. These fables have been further hybridised into scripts for performance, radio and puppetry/animation, all of which have received national productions. I define the Post-natural as ‘a human or natural environment that incorporates the Life Sciences: recombinant genetic technologies and biotechnologies, which mould and create futures that radically, alter our patterns of reproduction, food production and health management.’
