French philosopher, author, activist and broadcaster Bernard-Henri Levy will be in Athens on Monday, April 1, for the staging of his play “Looking for Europe” at the Pallas auditorium.
The Athens show is part of a European theatrical tour that takes to the stage in twenty cities, with Levi travelling to historic European capitals from March 5 until March 20 to present the play.
According to Levi, “theatrical production wants to negotiate this critical time in Europe, as it is only a few weeks before the European elections, amidst an apparent rise of nationalism and populism,” and the play is “an invitation to mobilize all the advocates of democracy,” says the French intellectual.
“There is still time,” Levi says, “to recall the European legacy of Erasmus, Dante, Goethe and Vaclav Havel. It is still opportune to remove the demons of totalitarianism, war and poverty. This can bring forth the European values of liberalism, humanism and integration.”
Tickets for the Athens show start at 10 euros and can be booked at www.viva.gr or by telephone at 11876.
The Pallas Auditorium is located at 4 Voukourestiou Street, in central Athens.
