FLIPPER, the hero from the eponymous TV show is 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. FLIPPER combines different artistic media such as dance, theatre and graphic visuals to present contrasting views of Kathy’s story to the audience in a tragi-comic way.
