About CODE

After an artificial superintelligence is accidentally released into the ‘wild’ of the internet, a chase ensues to recapture it. But how will it treat its creators? With malevolence, benevolence, or indifference? Based at the Barbican for a week of research and development, this innovative Toronto-based team reveal the discoveries they’re making in shaping this prescient piece of theatre. Finding inspiration in the biblical tale of the Tower of Babel, they investigate the moral conundrums raised by the creation of a new intelligence. Age Recommendation: 14+
