This is a call to action that has been mobilized from the urgent need to resist the intensifying normalization of fascism that litter the everyday public spaces and shape imaginaries. Using performance and speech tactics from street and guerilla theater, agitprop, Speakers' Corners, and political assemblies, the aim of 'Radical Empathy: A Continuous Score' is to initiate contexts for collective experience, demonstration, and dialogue insisting on vigilance and direct process as a dramaturgical method and approach.

P*D*A* in its current manifestation is excited by the potential of radical empathy as an imaginative prism. A prism creating a spectrum of possibilities to find new tools of action and awareness. How can the visual and performative literacy of art be shared and used collectively among artists, activists, researchers, and the general public to navigate the swiftly changing social and political climate?  

Can radical empathy allow us to counteract paralysing detachment and apathy that is growing today by the use of cynicism and irony? Can radical empathy be deployed as a strategy through which we investigate how to be aware and socially responsible? How do we counteract apathy and feeling unable, scared, or too vulnerable to join in a direct process? How can radical empathy be practiced or used as a tool or a method by which we examine racism, xenophobia, anti-semitism, islamophobia, homophobia, violence and hate?
