About The Event

A lonely Irishman undergoes a Kafkaesque metamorphosis that turns him into a rhino-head man. Embodying both hunter and hunted, he enters an eclectic series of real and fantasy worlds, from the medieval hunt of the unicorn to the recent death of the world’s last male northern white rhino. Documentary scenes in Kenya, Vietnam, and across Europe merge with Theatre of the Absurd-style stage performances of unicorn nightclubbers, horn smugglers, and reproductive biologists as a way to explore the fragile entanglement of all species versus the enduring power of the human imagination.

Bryony Dunne is an Irish visual artist and filmmaker who engages with the overlap between documentary film, cinema, photography, and the natural world. She develops interconnected narratives to explore the power dynamics between humanity and nature and fantasies of human control, oftentimes using fact-based fictions and hypothetical futures. Her work has been exhibited at the Mosaic Rooms (London), Gypsum and Townhouse galleries (Cairo), the Irish Film Institute (Dublin), and DEPO (Istanbul), and screened internationally, including the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival (Greece), Cork International Film Festival (Ireland), and Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin.
