Artist Alexandre Singh and philosopher Simon Critchley discuss Greek comedy and Aristophanes—whose work was the inspiration for Singh’s staging of The Humans—and contemplate the legacy of classical Greek theater today. Actor Sam Crane and theorist/philosopher Liesbeth Levy will also be joining Alexandre Singh and Simon Critchley.
