A Second Series of More-Than-Human Encounters #1. During this evening we will focus on tendrilesque writing. What happens to human speech if vines enter our flesh, roots crawl through our veins, and we turn into hybrid plant monsters? What happens if we let plants speak through us and what kind of new language, new bits of knowledge and new worlds can emerge from there? We will explore these topics while focusing on the status of women, and their relation to plants, as presented in works of fiction in which the distinction between women and plants becomes blurry.

First intended as a performative conference, On Enclosed Spaces and the Great Outdoors - 4. Grounding has been reworked into a series of radio contributions that was streamed in three parts from Kaaitheater.
