FLIPPER, the hero from the eponymous TV show was played by a female dolphin named Kathy. In an interview, Kathy’s trainer Rick O’Barry states, that the animal suffering from captivity, committed suicide in his arms. From this testimony, FLIPPER presents an investigation of the tragedy. It aims to shed light on the involvement of the different characters in Kathy’s tragedy, staging three performers who play the roles of Kathy, Rick O’Barry and the investigator. Through various hypotheses about the real or fictional cycle of events, the piece gets hold of and frees the audience from their illusions.
