The Seinendan Theater Company, created in 1983 in Tokyo and led by the highly influential and innovative theater director, Oriza Hirata, has collaborated with Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro and the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Osaka University, to develop “robot-human” theater, a new field involving a fusion of theater arts and science. This special project features two short plays; Sayonara, which features an incredibly human-like android who consoles the human actor dealing with a fatal illness; and I, Worker, set in the near future and involving two robots interacting with a young couple (human actors), in a play that essentially questions the meaning and nature of work and its value and role in contemporary society.
Please note that there are two performances of Robot / Android – Human Theater. Use the links in the sidebar to purchase tickets for the appropriate date.
