This article is about the life of Punset,the famous thinker.
“There is life before death,” said the unrepentant optimist who is Eduard Punset. The theatrical Viatges, inspired by his books, especially in the last, Journey to the optimism (Destiny, 2011), opens on Sunday in the room Ovidi Montllor the Mercat de les Flors and notes, said yesterday at the presentation, that claim. “We thought, hurgábamos uselessly in what is after death, when we should have been more interested in life,” reflected the popular science writer, referring, presumably, to humanity. In Viatges, which makes some ideas Punset theater, “we see that there is life before death and is worth living and exploring all the universes to us.”
In the play, a “quantum Opera” directed by Ferran Audi and drama of Jose Sanchis Sinisterra-coiner of the term, attracted both by Punset (one is tempted to say they have fallen into their networks), eight characters inspired by the ideas the discloser, including a young man dissatisfied with his work and a taxi driver who has discovered that winning the lottery does not provide happiness, are driven to a kind of portal “multiversal” allowing them to travel to parallel universes to explore themselves in alternative realities. The mixture has the subject of science fiction and philosophy accurately Audi said yesterday with his shirt: it contained printed Mister Spock with his hand outstretched in greeting the famous Vulcan (live long and prosper). The director called for the theater to bring the contributions made by science fiction and fantasy to science literacy. “Theatre is the machine multiversal [that can take you by the various multi-universes] par excellence,” mused with an air of character in Hitchhiker’s Guide.
Viatges, part of the Grec Festival, is presented as comedy with elements of science (the characters travel through wormholes, shortcuts space), absurd theater, dance and media, and has a projection on the radio, the Internet and social networks. “It’s very interesting shake, shake, shake to,” said Punset. “Removing recognized and accepted principles for centuries.” Listen to Punset has something to hear Mr. Chance, the gardener of Kosinski, played by Peter Sellers in the big screen. Everything seems simple or hearty transcendental metaphysics. Yesterday it was “very nice” the “emergence of science in popular culture”, an event judged as “the most important is happening since man is man and woman is woman.”
Regarding the allocation of Viatges the innovative genre of “quantum opera” initiated by Sanchis Sinisterra with Lost in Appalachia (1990), stressed the importance of quantum as a logic that goes beyond the classical anomalies and integrates accept uncertainty. “In the quantum everything is debatable and beyond the dogma,” said Punset, who advocated the “uncertainty” and “irreverent.”
Asked about his relationship with the theater and his favorite authors, Punset peteneras exited. “I’m from a generation that has seen little good theater, we were doing other things like travel.” In pure quantum logic added: In movies I think I’ve seen Blade Runner and little more. “
