Seminar on Stupidity

Oct 18, 2010

A soliloquy starring Dimitris Piatas on the importance of stupidity as an antidote to the merciless logic of our time…

Dimitris Piatas

The Seminar on Stupidity is a satirical monologue – the final seminar by a “professor” to the seniors in a modern technocratic college. The professor’s “life lesson” is a contemplative delirium on the everlasting importance of stupidity as an antidote to the square and often merciless logic of our time.

His defense of stupidity results in a sharp critique of contemporary civilization, which unfolds through the professor’s personal speech and parallel digital screening of “stupid” scenes and figures – from Charlot to Mr. Bean, from Erasmus to Napoleon.

Dimitris Piatas stars in this play penned by Sakis Serefas and directed by Katerina Polychronopoulou.

A discussion will follow.
