Can a “postanthropo-scene” of the living and the nonliving emerge in/as the encounter of anthropology, literature, improvisation, dance, martial arts and performance? General Humanity Lab 3: Animal Ancestor faces this challenge in the form of an experiment in transspecies musicking. In a multi-scenic performance five musicians/performers sound the relation of humans to the invisible and to the entire community of beings through the weaving together of theory and poetry, sound and movement.

Humans must go! is the programmatic opening, followed by a deep involvement with voudoun-rituals and techno-trance as techniques of contact with the invisible, with metamorphoses and hybridisations of animals and humans in Kafka’s animal fables and Animal Qi Gong, and with homo sapiens as the viral chance product of evolution. The performance ends with a juxtaposition of transspecies thought (on the relation of humans, and apes, humans and wolves) and embodied transspecies kinship. Dresscode Animalism!
