Inspired by the Dolphin House experiments, Breach's Fringe First award-winning show rips history apart to explore the difficulties of bridging cultural divides, the politics behind the stories we tell, and what happens when you inject a dolphin with LSD
‘Don’t even think in your own language. English, all the time!’
In 1965, an American scientist lived with a dolphin for ten weeks to try and teach him to speak English – part of a NASA-funded research project into human-animal communication. Condemned by the wider scientific community as an elaborate circus trick, Margaret’s lessons with Peter remain a controversial episode in the space race between the two Cold War superpowers.
