Pride Playreading – Animal MedicineEddi Wilson
A playreading of Eddi Wilson’s solo show, Animal Medicine is presented as a part of Victoria Pride 2020, with the support of the Victoria Pride Society. Eddi will share excerpts from the piece as a free reading, live streamed on Intrepid Theatre’s Facebook page. The live stream video can now be viewed on Facebook (no profile necessary to view). Watch the video.
What do you get when you cross a Two-Spirit Métis agnostic, a career in veterinary medicine, and a pathological preoccupation with parasites?
Part biology lesson, part pet therapy session; Animal Medicine explores the experience of a self-diagnosed human. Creator/performer Eddi Wilson uses music, monologue and movement to dissect what they have learned from a life spent staring in the microscope.
