In 1965, a researcher lived with a dolphin for ten weeks to try and teach him to speak English. It was part of a NASA-funded research project into human-animal communication.
Condemned by the wider scientific community as an elaborate circus trick, the experiment remains a controversial episode in the space race between the two Cold War superpowers.
Inspired by the Dolphin House experiments, Breach’s Fringe First winning Tank rips the story apart to explore the violence of language, the power of culture, and what happens when you inject a cetacean with LSD.
