During the Saturday programme you will have the chance to have a small taste of the performance ROBOT DREAMS.
In “ROBOT DREAMS” three dancers meet automata, robots, and animatronic body parts, and encounter the artificial intelligence ToMoMi. “I am living in your consciousness, thus I am” ToMoMi says in response to the question of whether she is real. Electricity and programming code let artificial agents come to ‘life’ that are not human nor animals but also no longer mere objects — they have a special presence, their own magic. They are creatures we create, they mirror us and expose our vulnerability and mortality. During the play the actors increasingly become Cyborgs and objects and due to sensors and technology, the machines begin to develop human qualities and feelings. What do robots dream of? What do we dream of when we dream of robots?
