From Metropolis to The Matrix, from Brave New World to Westworld, humans are obsessed with the possibility of intelligent machines and all the questions that they inspire. What is the mind? What is consciousness? And what will it look like when smart technology turns against its creators? Inspired by the classic 1920 Czech play, this SIUE original adaption is an irreverent and provocative mash-up of humor and horror, philosophy and science/fiction, pop culture and faith that explores the nature of artificial intelligence and human consciousness.
