Socrates Now

Arts on Wednesday on Wednesday 9th April at Massey’s Palmerston North campus saw an inspired performance of Socrates Now by Yannis Simonides. The show marked the the final leg of a 300 date world tour which took place across 15 countries.

The internationally acclaimed one-man show, presented by New York-based Emmy Award winner, Yannis Simonides, puts the audience in a ringside seat at the trial of Socrates in 399BC, at which Socrates, the Greek founder of Western philosophy – dubbed the “bad ass of Athens” – was sentenced to death because his insightful questioning embarrassed influential Athenians and was claimed to corrupt youth.
