Using a story or a thought experiment, two different age groups (children aged 5 and over and adults) discuss loneliness and independence. Questions are raised and controversies explored. The play Ballon Bandit is recommended as an accompaniment.

“Philosophize …” takes place once a month, always on Sundays, alternating between the Alpine Museum of Switzerland, the Dampfzentrale Bern or the Schlachthaus Theater Bern. Inspired by current stage plays or exhibitions, questions are raised and controversies opened up with the help of a story or a thought experiment.

For children from the age of five as well as adults. The two separate discussion rounds are led by philosophers and theater educators.

“Philosophize…” is a joint project of the Alpine Museum of Switzerland, the Schlachthaus Theater Bern and the Dampfzentrale Bern.
