Performance synopsis

The performance ‘Embodied thought’ is a philosophical journey of the mind in the body, both literally and figuratively. Quoting one of the modern Pythagoreans from the Greek island of Gavdos: ‘It is better to travel with someone. Then one says: let's go there, and the other says: no, let's go the other way. And when there is a third, he wants to go elsewhere. Finally, they don’t go anywhere, and instead they start talking. And here's a place for philosophy.’
