Philosophical Performance Art: “Searching for Diogenes” | SoMa
Submitted by the Event Organizer
Searching for Diogenes is a three-part performance that weaves together the life, myth and legacy of Diogenes of Sinope (aka the Dog). A controversial figure, Diogenes’ provocative actions in public space were designed to disrupt, challenge and subvert social values and conventions.
Searching for Diogenes traces the philosopher’s historical record, invented depictions, and contemporary relationship to performance, public space, representation and behavior.
