Document Posthuman Theatre was created in response to what Alexandre Kojève calls “the animalization of mankind.” A joint production of Gekidan Kaitaisha and the Polish avant-garde Teatr Cinema group, it was performed in Tokyo in 2011, and in Germany and Poland in 2012. Document Posthuman Theatre is the end result of these efforts; a symposium consisting of a performance, a viewing, and lectures.
