Summary

Harvard-educated, molecular biologist, visual artist and provocative underground philosopher, Steven Friedman has the answers to life’s big questions. Presented by Al Corley (Dynasty), this one-of-a kind theatrical event – neither play nor lecture – is staged to reflect Friedman’s prismatic and eclectic vision of the world using personal narrative, poetry, art and science to tell the story of a contemporary philosopher's quest to fulfill Einstein's ambition "to solve the riddle of the great, big world."

In a spell-binding and often divisive performance, Friedman offers a solution to the world’s pain – a philosophy reflecting Kierkegaard’s story of an ancient torture device, Phalaris’s bull, that turned the terrible sounds of pain into music. To create is to enter Phalaris’s bull, and our pain becomes beauty.
