Transforma Theatre’s mission is to align forms of theater with current scientific research in neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and epigenetics, and communicate it in a pioneering way of storytelling. In this interactive theatrical experiment of BIOADAPTED we will employ texts about AI and generated by AI (GPT-3). Audience members will participate by wearing EEG headsets which will generate BCI (brain-computer-interface) instructions for the movement of actors as human marionettes in flying systems.
Transforma Theatre Inc. is dedicated to creating interactive theatrical experiences at the nexus of science, consciousness and ritual. Transforma’s first piece was “The Female Role Model Project (FRMP)” using EEG headsets on stage to investigate contemporary gender structures from the perspective of four completely different female-identifying devisers sharing their autobiographical stories through a series of interactive games. FRMP was produced Off-Broadway in NYC’s premier hub for arts and technology- Three-Legged Dog (3LD) and at Bedlam Theatre, as part of the Edinburgh Fringe 2019. It received an Honorable mention in the Creativity category of Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards and a nomination for the outstanding innovative design at New York Innovative Theatre Awards. It’s been called “Gender-and generation-transcending,” “Best 23 Shows of Edinburgh Fringe” by inews and brinkwire, and “Original, thought-provoking, funny, absorbing, GROUNDBREAKING WORK ” by Kate Saffin, Fringe Review.
