Phalaris's Bull: Solving the Riddle of the Great Big World

Phalaris's Bull: Solving the Riddle of the Great Big World

at Theatre Row - The Beckett Theatre

Harvard-educated, molecular biologist, visual artist and provocative underground philosopher, Steven Friedman has the answers to life’s big questions. This one-of-a kind theatrical event – neither play nor lecture – staged to reflect Friedman’s prismatic and eclectic vision of the world, uses personal narrative, poetry, art and science to tell the story of a contemporary philosopher's quest to fulfill Einstein's ambition "to solve the riddle of the great, big world."

In a spell-binding and often divisive performance, Friedman offers a solution to the world’s pain – a philosophy based on Kierkegaard’s story in which an ancient torture device, Phalaris’s Bull, turned the terrible sounds of pain into music. To create is to enter Phalaris’s bull, and our pain becomes beauty.
