Production Description

Casting "R0M30 & JU£13+" an ‘impostor’ Romeo & Juliet. The piece is currently in development as a work-in-progress. Casting both the work-in-progress production and the full production. In the piece, live performers enact a script generated by artificial intelligence programs — mostly various types of chatterbots talking to each other and to Shakespeare’s characters. Taking a cue from the paranoia that a chatbot expresses when talking to another chatbot (“Are you a human or a bot?”), the work explores questions of identity and authenticity. United Broadcasting (www.unitedbroadcastingtheater.com) is an experimental theater company under the direction of Jamie Poskin.
