Festival Escenes de filosofia i teatre. Les nits de La Maleta i La Perla

From 10.26.2017 to 10.28.2017

Philosophy returns to the theatre, this year under the title "silence and speech". Oriol Broggi and Josep Ramoneda bring together the two cultural universes that surround them and this proposal comes from the intersection of languages. Philosophy and theater dialogue at the Teatre Biblioteca de Catalunya and invite the viewer to immerse themselves in the existing relationship between words and silence through various formats: talks, meetings, coffees, stagings and whatever comes up .


Scenes of philosophy and theater 2018 starts from a question: in a moment of cultural relativism, of a plurality of opinions and dissonant voices, all put on the same level of construction of reality; in a time of information dispersion where a new form of censorship is imposed on those who do not contribute to generating noise, where is the silence? Where is the nothing that gives meaning to being? Where is the listening and the minimum basis of consensus, necessary to undertake any dialogue? From where to build a common agreement today? Scenes of philosophy and theater claims the theatrical form as a specific and fruitful mode of thinking in common, as an ideal framework from which to think anew about the need to collectively build common bases . It is necessary to recover the scene as a form of thought, its determining relationship with the public, with its implicit codes - which may need to be broken - and with a presence - which may need to be rethought - unprecedented in other areas. It must be resumed in order to reverse the individualism inherent in modernity, the basis of the extreme cultural relativism that today prevents any solid attempt at community thinking.
