Phalaris's Bull: Solving the Riddle of the Great Big World

Phalaris’s Bull: Solving the Riddle of the Great Big World is the story of a philosopher’s quest for a solution to all of life’s problems. A solution based not on belief or faith but on logical rigor. A solution to what Einstein called “the riddle of the great, big world.”

Using personal narrative, poetry, art, and science, Steven Friedman delivers a spell-binding performance reflecting his prismatic, eclectic, transformative and deeply consoling vision of the world. Friedman offers a solution to the world’s pain – a philosophy starting from Kierkegaard’s story in which an ancient torture device, Phalaris’s bull, turns the terrible sounds of pain into music.
