NOI, ROBOT debutta a PACTA - 18, 19 e 20 Gennaio

Ci siamo, ecco che il nostro nuovo lavoro sta per andare in scena definitivamente. Dopo tanto lavoro siamo orgogliosi di confermare che il 18 19 e 20 Gennaio 2018 NOI, ROBOT sarà a PACTA dei Teatri, Salone di Via Dini a Milano per il Festival ScienzaInScena Atto 1!

In pieno stile Jet Propulsion Theatre, lo spettacolo è pensato per un pubblico "generico" e quindi non per gli addetti ai lavori, che comunque troveranno molti spunti interessanti. Lo spettacolo vuole generare curiosità e meraviglia attorno a quello che il fisico dell'M.I.T. Max Tegmark definisce "la più importante conversazione del nostro tempo", cioè la possibilità che esseri umani e macchine si uniscano per dare inizio a quella che viene definita la VITA 3.0.

Cosa vuol dire essere umano nell’era delle Macchine Pensanti?
NOI, ROBOT prova che la relazione fra due “individui”, uno umano e l’altro macchina, non è affatto semplice e può portare a dei paradossi insormontabili. Lo spettacolo esplora anche il cervello umano, e allo stesso tempo vuole capire dove sta andando il campo dell’Intelligenza Artificiale. NOI, ROBOT fa infine riferimento all’altro “cervello collettivo” che ci comprende, l’Universo, visto come un sistema complesso per molti versi simile al cervello umano, a partire dal fatto molto curioso che ci sono circa 100 miliardi di neuroni nel cervello umano e circa 100 miliardi di galassie nell’Universo che riusciamo ad osservare!

The Principle of Uncertainty staged in Colorado

We are very pleased and proud to announce that our play The Principle of Uncertainty will soon be staged in the U.S.
Here are the details:
NEXT PRODUCTION: THE PRINCIPLE OF UNCERTAINTY BY ANDREA BRUNELLO
Zephyr Stage at Cavalcade in Fruita, Colorado is in rehearsal for its next production - The Principle of Uncertainty by Andrea Brunello! A professor of physics reveals, during a lecture on Schrödinger's cat, and the behavior of light, an awestruck wonder for the beauty of the universe and also a private, closely-held grief. The play is beautiful, tender, poignant, funny, profound, and brilliant, and it will take you to the very heart of the quantum mystery and leave you dazzled! The original play was written and performed within the Jet Propulsion Theatre Project, www.jetpropulsiontheatre.org. This one-woman show features Zephyr Stage's Executive Artistic Director Valerie Haugen Nuzzo. Nuzzo recently co-wrote and directed "Multitudes" about the American poet Walt Whitman. She’s performed in more than 50 productions, over 20 years, with Thunder River Theatre Company in Carbondale, including playing all the big Greek girls - Lysistrata, Medea and Antigone. Performance dates for the Principle of Uncertainty are Jan. 19-21, 26-27, 2018. Performances take place at Cavalcade in Fruita, Colorado. Show times are 7:30 p.m. except for the Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. Find Zephyr Stage at Cavalcade on Facebook or Twitter or online at www.zephyrstage.com.

Le Principe de l’Incertitude

The Principle of Uncertainty with a french accent? Much more than that!

Thanks to a grant from the King Baudouin Foundation we have been able to produce an “unplugged” version of our very succesful play “The Principle of Uncertainty”. On stage is the belgian actor Vincent Vanderbeeken and the translation from English to French has been done by Pierre Echard. Directing is done by Andrea Brunello.

Rehearsals started in mid October 2017 and they will continue on and off till the premiere which is expected to be in March 2018. The work is proceeding very well, Vincent is an exciting actor and the Principle of Uncertainty "a la francaise” is quite exciting...
