We work in skyscrapers, we fly aboard supersonic aircraft, we perform nuclear fission, but our brains and instincts are the same as our hunter-gatherer ancestors. Homo sapiens, the human of today, is the only species capable of drastic changes on social, ecological, political levels without changing its DNA. This postulate helps to better understand some of our behaviour. Sapiens (?), a show staged in the form of a false conference, will take you, with humour and emotion, through two realities that our species lives in on a daily basis: the objective reality, the one to which all living species are confronted, with mountains, water, hunger; and the imaginary reality, the one that Sapiens has invented, and which includes nations, money, Google, and so on.
