“A theatrical delight, seriously smart, with a hint of science sexy….” The Arts Review
Eliza’s Adventures in the Uncanny Valley explores what it is to be human. In the early 1960s, MIT developed artificial intelligence software called ELIZA, its title a reference to Shaw’s Pygmalion. ELIZA made certain kinds of conversations between humans and computers possible.
Our ELIZA is sent into an anonymous motel, where she interacts with four characters mysteriously booked into the same room. Some of them seem to be barely alive, others too much so.
They explore love, death, metaphysics, evil - and evolution.
