Beast of Burden of Proof explores ethics and environmentalism in a unique hybrid of performance art and social experiment.
Happening as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week, Beast of Burden of Proof is an interactive performance art piece exploring the ethical and environmental implications of exterminating a species that has been classified as a pest.
Common Myna are commonly referred to as ‘cane toads of the sky’ or ‘flying rats’ due to the havoc they wreak on native birds and their interference with human infrastructure. Now, the species is facing extermination across the country.
In a compelling social experiment meets participatory art performance, Beast of Burden of Proof puts the fate of the Common Myna in the audience’s hands, exploring the consequences of eradicating an entire species.
