In association with the research project “Creative Citizenship from the Promotion of Critical, Ethical and Creative Thinking” financed by the Colombian Ministry of Science and Technology, Simone has created an art-and-philosophy project to encourage critical thinking by uniting the concepts of Gastroperformance and Philosophy for Children.
A performance with an exclusive soundtrack proposes a collective rethink on questions such as “What will food be like in the future?” “Is it necessary to kill in order to live?”
The project takes the audience through four acts and two interactions.In the first interaction, in which the performative experience with food takes place, chocolate hearts are handed around to trigger thought. In the second interaction, a philosophical dialogue sparks the experience of thought.
