MY LITTLE ENLIGHTENMENT PLAYS is a multimedia project by Sophie Seita centred around three experimental performance pieces: 1. Don Carlos, or, Royal Jelly; 2. Les Bijoux Indiscrets, or, Paper Tigers; 3. Emilia Galotti’s Colouring Book of Feelings — all of which present imaginary tête-a-têtes with Enlightenment thinkers, writers, and scientists.
