Panta rei
for an urban phylosophy

Panta rei, in Greek “everything flows”, is Heraclitus’ famous and controversial aphorism which expresses the inner core of

the doctrine of “becoming”.

Let’s start from here, from this simple and profound inspiration, to continue our search for union between philosophy, dance and urban space.

Panta Rei is the first step of a project that intends to put philosophers and their ideas in the space and time of art. It is our task to find suitable environments for a concrete and performative realization of philosophical thinking.

For Heraclitus, then, a river. His thought on relentlessly flowing waters.

 

It is not possible to step twice into the same river or to come into contact twice with a mortal being in the same state, but by its swiftness and speed of change it comes together and separates, approaches and departs.
