In 2017/18 we’re starting Six Chapters of Enlightenment, six years of concerts celebrating the thought that made the modern world.
First up is Visions, Illusions and Delusions, which explores the doubts 18th century philosophers had about the limits of human perception.
We thought those ideas still hit home in an age of fake news, when people’s identities shift behind Tinder profile pictures and some even propose we’re living in a computer simulation.
So we made this short film to introduce the season bringing all that together.
See all ten concerts here.
