In Homo Deus Frankenstein, a robot confronts us with the existential questions posed by today’s world. What role do machines and artificial intelligence play in our daily lives? What emotions do they provoke in human beings? Could it be that they themselves experience emotions? What is really the difference between Human and Machine today? Based on the themes of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and Goethe’s Faust, Sara Ostertag and her team propose a succession of captivating tableaux, where video, theatre, song and dance intermingle. Through the war of the robots, a GPS route leading to our heart, or teatime at a cyborg’s house, Homo Deus Frankenstein questions
us, like a musical comic strip, about
our times. Torn between the real and the virtual, between the inner self and the reign of appearances, are people and machines desperately trying to become “augmented versions” of themselves? Frederik Neyrinck’s music for bass clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, trombone and percussion, alternating between dancing lines and enveloping layers, is the perfect accompaniment for the two performers, dancer and singer, and the video.
