  • Q & A

    6 June, following the performance

Drawing on the 1909 sci-fi short story The Machine Stops by E. M. Forster, Burgtheater actor Caroline Peters brings together a group of media artists under the name Ledwald to elaborate a dystopian non-solo for an actor & the machine. Here Peters, a presence par excellence on both stage and screen, is breaking new ground. Up on stage, a deeply emotional dialogue with the video image emerges, an exaggeration of the lockdown situation. Yet the fact of cohabiting with Artificial Intelligence, with a ‘needs-satisfaction machine’, has ceased to be just that: satisfying. The many possibilities afforded by the virtual space clearly stake out the real isolation and physical distance. Rampant is now the longing for closeness and touch, for communication that is not based on an intermediate projection. An evening by and with a great female actor that explores the contrasts between humankind and machine, nature and technology. And one that makes the symbiotic entanglement of opposites palpable. Where? At the theatre of course.
