“R.U.R.” ROSSUM’S UNIVERSAL ROBOTS
Come explore the very nature of life with the play written by Karel Capek that invented the word "robot."
What makes us human? What is consciousness? And what will it look like when artificial intelligence turns against its creators?
A secretive robot factory creates a global supply of humanoid robots to perform those tasks humans no longer wish to do. As the robots take over every aspect of human labor, people lose their purpose and soon the robots are sparked to revolt.
Imagine the near future with this original stage adaptation directed by Abel Cornejo and performed by Digital Theatre Workshop.
With sets and costumes inspired by cyberpunk manga and anime, witness this dazzling and colorful quest for love and connection, in a time of encroaching artificial life.
