The question of the play Robots – Will he give up his robots for ‘her’?
“A stylish mechanical danseuse shifts sensually around the room, troubling the already somewhat addled mind of our gentleman. We have entered an alternate universe, on that’s at once poetic and decadent.”
I suppose we must call this an alternate universe but I think it is very real. Many people find their virtual interactions more comforting than their ‘real’ ones. The core appeal of the play is the first real use of ‘real’ robots on stage. Hybrid or virtual robots are far more successful at infiltrating our lives.
