The Odniki Cultural Centers and Theater Alchemy invite you to attend a theater lesson by Professor Miroslav Kogor “Theater of Things”.
The professor puts forward the thesis that things dominate us, and that the technological revolution has only escalated the presence of things in our lives. Things are not only in the environment, in the world. Where we live, they fill our apartments, but they are also in our bodies. What is crucial in this new theater of things is the ultimate recognition of the efficacy of things.
