‘You are all here, because we need your input on the final question on biological life: should we give it another chance or let it perish forever?’
Time: the not-so-distant future.
Space: a conference amongst AI.
Biological life is extinct. One organism has the power to bring it all back. The choice is yours.
The W.I.G. of Life: A Conference is a witty and thought-provoking look into human history and our collective responsibility towards nature and ourselves. Dance, comedy and TV are blended into an interactive journey through changing moral codes and futuristic visuals, as you are invited to put on your chosen avatar and confront your very own preconceptions.
'The cast, who also wrote and directed, are first-rate'
'Interactive, not forcingly immersive.'
'This wig bonanza by anti life, pardon, AI life is playful and colourful, funny and witty, and never takes itself too serious as several voluntary and involuntary smirks on stage prove – this conference delivers an interactive, philosophical sci-fi malarky with laugh-out-loud moments and brain pickings side by side.'
