PROJECT 101 brings together artists from different countries for an interdisciplinary collaboration based on Roger Pol-Droit’s book 101 Experiments in the Philosophy of Everyday Life. This project is divided into 4 phases/actions: FLYERS (in Lisbon’s Bairro Alto flyers are distributed with instructions for the experiences proposed in 101 Experiments in the Philosophy of Everyday Life); SOCIAL BEARS (what if two bears went out for a coffee in Bairro Alto?); SHOP WINDOWS (A television circuit is installed in several shop windows between Largo de Camões and Calçada do Combro. In them we see the performers completing the 101 tasks); MASAKO POINT (an exercise in perception, inviting the public to a game that subverts theatrical conventions and reflects on the spectator’s role).
