AND SALON: SIMIAN SAFARI
Sunday, 2 October 2011 from 15:00 to 17:30 (BST)
Liverpool, United Kingdom
15:00 - 17:30 SALON Only
15:00 - 22:00 SALON + DINNER + MOVIE
Hosted by Rob La Frenais, with Rachel Mayeri and Sarah-Jane Vick
What is it that makes us
human? Does trying to understand other intelligent species such
as chimpanzees or dolphins tell us something about ourselves, our belief that we are somehow unique? In this salon and bus tour of Knowsley Safari Park we explore interspecies communication and whether we can break free of what John Berger called the “loneliness of man as a species”.
Joining the discussion are
Rachel Mayeri, creator of AND Festival highlight Primate Cinema: Apes as Family, and expert in chimp
cognition Dr Sarah-Jane Vick.
Please note: Unlike previous salons, this Salon is taking place at Knowsley Safari Park including a bus from Liverpool and a tour of the park. Our coach will be picking up guests in Liverpool at The Art Organisation (TAO) Gallery, 102 Seel Street, Liverpool, L1 4BL

When & Where
Abandon Normal Devices
Abandon Normal Devices
Across the Northwest Summer 2012
Manchester Festival 29 August - 02 September 2012
Abandon Normal Devices is a call to arms, a festival that questions the norm and champions a different approach.
A catalyst for production and experimentation, AND exists to create a space where artists and filmmakers can offer striking new perspectives, and visitors can enjoy, discuss and interact with ideas.
Every year we welcome audiences to experience the best in new cinema and digital culture, in an experience that spills from the screens and galleries into the streets and imaginations of the Northwest
For details of the full AND 2012 programme go to http://www.andfestival.org.uk
Abandon Normal Devices (AND) is an energetic regional festival of new cinema and digital culture. A unique partnership between FACT, Cornerhouse and folly, the festival was launched in Liverpool in 2009. In subsequent years it has alternated between Liverpool and Manchester with an extended regional programme across Cheshire, Cumbria and Lancashire.
Abandon Normal Devices is a 2012 inspired festival, funded by Legacy Trust UK and part of WE PLAY, the Northwest cultural legacy programme for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
