Reactivating Idiotic Methodology

We are living in a political culture of post truth. Indeed, these are our idiotic political times. Politicians rule the world by the use of twitter, climate change is just simply denied and populism and nationalism are -once again -strongly on the rise.  But instead of fighting the Idiot and judging from our Facebook bubble the world we think we are not part of, Dieuwke Boersma and Vanja Smiljanić offer a pharmakonian alternative.

Within a 5-step plan the audience is introduced to the idiot as a political instrument of change. Throughout each stage another element is introduced that supports the audience to eventually turn the poison of our idiotic times into its medicine. Moreover, becoming part of idiotic experiments, such as happy hardcore dancing Vagina, inventive problem making and a collective mur-mur demonstration on the street, teaches the audience the mysteries idiotic methodology to revolt.
