The solo-performance 8 times wilder is a dialogue between a veterinarian and a beached whale. The veterinarian is confronted with the cruelty of a delicate decision: whether or not to kill a beached whale.
And if she must kill the whale, then how?

But why kill the whale?
To keep her from suffering?
On what basis can we make such a decision?

In the play, the protagonist experiences the contradictions in one of the many binary worldviews shaping our society: the scientific, positivist, explicable, logical mindset on the one hand,  and the magical, spiritual, carnal part, governed by inexplicable forces, on the other.
The woman embodies these contradictions: her body and her story become the place where these extremes meet and act.

The protagonist does not surrender to the need for a simple and immediate answer to the whale-killing dilemma; she dives deep into its complexity, and it is in this very intricate complexity that she finds unconditional love for herself and for whale: an abyss where her soul can still be mirrored.

Where do we bring our soul to recognize itself if not in the belly of the whale?
