RECONNECT ART // PRAGUE biENNLE 13-30.7.2023

New on Vimeo:

Automatism and freedom; participation in civil society; spontaneity and social architecture - these are the concerns that artist Guy Bar-Amotz brings to a new unconventional adaptation of R.U.R. – the play (1920) that coined the term ‘robot’.

 

Guy’s distinctive approach to art is integrated into this piece developed in collaboration with theatre maker, writer, playwright, academic and journalist from Italy Armando Rotondi and computer scientist Piers O’Hanlon through performers wearing mech-animated talking robot masks. Live motion comes into imaginative fusion with living sculpture, spatial sound, son-et-lumière stagecraft and interactive programming.
