‘Opening the Circle: Performance Philosophy as an Animal Movement’ by Laura Cull Ó Maoilearca is a short text that uses the figure of the circle to diagram a set of relations between performance, philosophy and anthropocentrism. Bergson's notion of 'the open soul' as conceived in The Two Sources of Morality and Religion, and Fevered Sleep's interspecies research project Sheep Pig Goat (2017) provide the counter-examples to what Una Chaudhuri calls 'the anthropocentric grammar of the normal'.
