European Philosophical Song Contest - Théâtre Vidy

TICKETS

European Song Festival Theatre De Vidy Bijgeknipt Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne
The most important European thinkers wrote lyrics for pop songs that are performed as they would have been at a Eurovision Song Contest.

Director Massimo Furlan and dramaturg Claire de Ribaupierre  asked major European thinkers to compose philosophical lyrics for pop songs. These songs are performed live and in their original language. A local jury of intellectuals comment on each song text and vote with the audience to choose the winning song.

With the European Philosophical Song Contest, the makers aim to respond to the growing contempt that populist discourse displays towards intellectuals, and to the disappearance of thought from the public discourse in favour of entertainment. It is by ruse and camouflage that they decided to act.

Europe's most important thinkers write philosophical pop songs!
