STATO VEGETALE (online) +more
Moved by the current ecological crisis, Charles Darwin has returned to Earth with an experiment, Stato Vegetale, to save human beings from extinction. The experiment is a performance that invites the audience to get into the body of a plant, to learn its survival skills. Anyone can participate in Stato Vegetale: you will perform the performance live, from your own home, following Darwin's instructions. We also invite you to join the experience, even if you don't want to actively participate.
In Spanish with English Subtitles.

A participatory performance that invites the audience to experience philosophical concepts through interactive theatrical games, moving from ideas to actions.
The authors realize an autobiographical travel to their adolescence through the theories of six great philosophers studied at High School: Socrates, Plato, Hume, Mill, Kierkegaard and Nietzsche. Six images are projected from the authors' body and ask out the spectator to consider their own relationship with Philosophy.
Concepts materialize, taking the form, color and movement of dreams, memories and fantasies. Theories are released from the notebook as if they came out of a secret diary.
