the animal who i am (following) questions the creation with, by or for other animals within performance art. This research questions the very place of the performance, the act of creation, its spaces and temporalities, including the Internet, the authorat, the technological and processual modalities of communication and creation with animals, the conditions of a sharing with an audience. In order to bring out possibilities and refine speculations, the ethical and aesthetic explorations of this proposal take root in the writings and interventions of thinkers of performance art and animal sciences while being enriched by the practice of doers, artists, technicians, ethologists. The specificity of this cross-species research also requires a series of technological and performative experiments. Thus will be convened: animals, ethologists, trainers, European research groups of interspecies communication and creation, a practitioner of hypnosis, performers, machines, a hacker, Internet spaces, spaces with a strong animal dominance, famous cats on the Internet.
