PlatoPlatina is based on Plato’s dialogue The Lesser Hippias. It is one of Plato’s most controversial dialogues, where Socrates argues that there is no difference between a person who tells the truth and a liar. The good man is according to the argument, the one who voluntarily fails do bad things.
This paradox is explored by two platinum-blonde performers. Based on Plato’s text we mix expressions from a talk show, badminton and interaction with the audience. The PlatonPlatina project wants to create a work that, with the help of philosophy, opens up dialogue. Dialogue is the core of a democratic society – without dialogue no democracy. The project uses humour, slapstick, music and a strong visual language to emphasize the paradox of the dialogue.
