"Know Thyself gave me an existential pain in my side that lasted for days. It was a revealing, immersive theater experience that had me wrestling with my ego, Jessica Ellen Creane's work has left an enduring mark on me."
- The Broad Street Review
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” - Plato
Philosophy is both familiar and mystifying. “I think therefore I am,” “Tyranny of the Majority,” “Know Thyself.” What do these words really mean and how do we live by them?
KNOW THYSELF invites participants to enter The Museum of Philosophy for an interactive exhibit that transforms abstract philosophies into interactive games and experiences ranging from Schrödinger's Cat to Eudaimonia. Each game contends with the good, the bad, and the confounding of each belief system, inviting participants to discover if they know themselves, and others, as well as they think they do. In this immersive, gamified philosophy salon the rules we live by- and their consequences- are always in play.
KNOW THYSELF premiered September 5-21 as part of the Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
