Art… The only human concept Robots couldn’t calculate.
Humanity is enslaved. The Robots rule the surface. Giles is a director/playwright/human and is given a chance to leave the mines by helping the Robots calculate art. It’s not going to be easy, and it’s a lot to compute…
A Tragicomedy about the redemption of humanity, written by Travis Cotton and performed by GradCo Studio.
“Robots Vs. Art is certainly a bit of fun” Kate Herbert, Herald Sun
“Robots Vs Art could easily become a Comedy Festival hit. Check it out.” – Cameron Woodhead, Sydney Morning Herald
Directed by Sean Foster
Featuring Aimee Lodge, Cassius Russel, Heaven-Cheyenne Campbell and Natanyah Forbes
Music and scoring composed by Paris Change.
Travis Cotton’s comedy hit Robots Vs. Art is a play about robots trying to make theatre. Directing this hilarious play will be Sean Foster making his directorial debut! Sean has been a member of GradCo.Studio since 2018, and you may remember him from GCS’s 2018 Fringe Show Hannah, in the knockout performance of Luke. The play will be performed with a completely original soundtrack composed by Paris Change, also a member of GradCo.Studio. Paris has written and composed music for a number of theatre pieces and though his music is unique, it is perfectly suited to the projects he takes on.
A note from the Director
“My vision for the play is to make it feel epic and cinematic, a majority of the theatre I see tends to not make as much use of music as films do. This play allows us to get away with that, because it wants us to suspend our disbelief a little bit more than normal. I hope audiences will walk away thinking that this play is hilarious, but then not be able to sleep because they’re afraid of their smart watch.”
Robots Vs. Art was performed at the Emerging Artist Sharehouse (Erskineville Town Hall) from September 3-7, 2019.
