Day eight of Portland's Time Based Art (TBA) festival features contemporary theater performance, 'GERMINAL,' by French artists Halory Goerger and Antoine Defoort. GERMINAL is an unconventional play about how humans would run the world if given the chance to start from scratch. 

The Portland Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA) said GERMINAL is one of the most talked-about recent works of contemporary international theater. 

In the play the characters invent telepathy, question physics, and construct new rules for social engagement. GERMINAL stands as a metaphor for human evolution, according to PICA. 

GERMINAL shows at 8:30 p.m. Sept. 18-19 at Portland State University's Lincoln Performance Hall, 1620 SW Park Ave., Portland.

The show costs $25 and $20 for PICA members.
