We re-enacted a future where robots have taken over Earth and only one human being remains. We fought with bubbles in a battle between reason and passion. We mixed hurdy gurdy and theramin and electronic dance music. We laughed. We improvised. We asked our audience to put on robot costumes and to play along. We made beautiful art with lighting gels and an overhead projector. We worked with cardboard. We wore fabulous costumes. We sang. We made mistakes. We created a mesmerizing shadow play that really really worked. We filled the house three nights in a row with very happy (though somewhat confused) audiences. We didn’t know what the heck we were doing AND we did it anyway.

Somebody had to do it, and I’m glad we were the ones who did.
