We are in the making of a performance that explores the possibilities of Platon’s dialogue Lesser Hippias, which deals with the paradox of what “a good person” is – that it is the one who wrongs voluntarily. Which reflects several of contemporary issues regarding democracy and equality. Through two middle-aged platinum blonde performers’ different experiences, we explore conflicts, comedy and drama. This is based on Platon’s text and mixes expressions from talk shows, theatre and badminton.
We want to create more interest in philosophy and how it can raise awareness of important topics and create dialogue. Target audience: from young adults and upwards.
For the moment played in Swedish and Norwegian. Italian and English versions are on the way.
