Performance synopsis

ROBOT ’N’ PERSON is a love story between a robot and a human, set in the automated and comfortable future of year of 2121. PERSON is inactive and slothful, with algorithms having taking over all the vital functions. But they are suddenly surprised by ROBOT’s revolt and its expression of emotions. This artificial emotionality is unexpectedly more real and extremely subversive towards the market of the future, trading not only data, but also thoughts, feelings and human neurons.
