Animal MedicineEddi WIlson
What do you get when you cross a Two-Spirit Métis agnostic, a career in veterinary medicine, and a pathological preoccupation with parasites?
Welcome to Animal Medicine General Practice! We’re sorry you’re here but happy you made it. The patient will be you now.
Part biology lesson, part pet therapy session; ‘Animal Medicine’ explores the experience of a self-diagnosed human. Eddi Wilson uses music, monologue and movement to dissect what they have learned from a life spent staring in the microscope.
Animal Medicine has been developed through UNO Fest & Intrepid Theatre’s YOU Show.
