Monday 7th to Friday 11th August 2023
Join Thunk-It Theatre for a fun filled week at Pocklington Arts Centre this Summer! In this ‘Play-in-a-Week’ project for 11-18 year olds, the group will create a performance of ‘Are You A Robot?’ by Tim Crouch to share with family and friends in a performance at the end of the week.
Sessions take place Monday to Thursday, 10am-3pm, and Friday, 10am-7pm, with a performance at Pocklington Arts Centre on Friday 11th August at 6pm.
ABOUT THE PLAY: ‘Two groups of children meet. They look the same; they imagine similar things; they make almost the same noises; they dance in the same way. But one group is a digital version of the other; they are the face we see reflected back to us online; they’re exciting and demanding and hard to live up to. The two groups try to work eachother out and decide if they can exist together. This is a joyful collision between real and fake, perfect and imperfect, human and robot. It’s an investigation into – and a celebration of – humanness.’
This play is part of the ‘Positive Stories for Negative Times’ project – an international participatory project by WonderFools: https://positivestories.scot
The final performance will be videoed and uploaded to the interactive map, as part of the project!
This project is FREE for all young people, thanks to our funders ‘I AM’.
