In the present, a small group of scientists sit professionally worrying about all this and invite you to explore the aftermath of what they believe will be an “intelligence explosion”.
Part scientific conference, part apocalyptic public service announcement. Join award-winning Little Bulb Theatre (Orpheus, Extravaganza Macabre, Operation Greenfield) for a mind-bending musical evening of experimental electronica and prophetic polyphonic singing as we journey to the future.
Something of a mess, but for the most part a brilliantly absurd, earnestly didactic one
But its squelchy electric guitar sounds and tongue-in-cheek sketches creates something different: a refreshingly accessible intro to a future we can’t afford to look away from
A musical romp through the artificial intelligence debate that’s entertaining but only skims the surface
A plea for wisdom and humility as we build the machines that could far surpass our human capabilities
This fun, irreverent, and brilliantly choreographed cosmic rock concert shines a comic light on the nature of AI and human consciousness
The Future is a lot of fun and it feels so fantastical that it’s hard to take seriously, but the show is based on real ideas, real scientists and real possible scenarios
