With Anne Bogart
What is the truth? Simon Critchley, one of today's leading contemporary philosophers and moderator of the popular New York Times philosophy series "The Stone," presents On Truth (and Lies), a new conversation series that encourages audiences to abandon their convictions at the door and explore the ambiguity of reality.
Legendary theater director Anne Bogart joins Critchley to discuss how truth and deception are revealed in tragedy. Bogart has ventured into the world of tragedy in several works, including Orestes, Antigone, and this season's production of Trojan Women (After Euripides). She is the artistic director of SITI Company, which she founded with Japanese director Tadashi Suzuki in 1992, and a professor at Columbia University.
