Inspired by the literary concept of the unreliable narrator and the medieval bestiary, which gave every living thing a spiritual purpose, The Unreliable Bestiary is an ark of stories about animals, our relationships with them, and the worlds they inhabit. Deke Weaver’s life-long project is presenting a performance for every letter of the alphabet – each letter representing a threatened animal or habitat. Beyond the live performances the project includes a book and digital-film/DVD documenting each performance, and solo versions of each performance. The slow accumulation of books and digital-films/DVDs will form an encyclopedic set, transforming the work, giving longer life and physical form to this ephemeral practice.
