– meal and round table discussion in total darkness / Meeting of Senses and Imagination -
In order to access new knowledge, to reinvent ourselves, to meet the “unknown” we need first to loose our points of reference. For this reason we chose the restaurant O’Noir as a perfect set up for the opening event of the Physical Lectures. Shared meal/lecture in total darkness is a symbolic and yet practical
choice in order to experience our physical bodies while engaged in a process of thought. We wish to create a situation where open attention and
sensorial perception become a source of knowledge. A meal/lecture in the dark will disorient us in order to redefine a new ways of perception and communication, will enable us to reexamine how we process information, and ultimately will root us in a
sensual experience of our bodies while talking about the Body.
