What Robots Need to Learn
Wonderland Incorporated Part 3Stage comic Music & Sound Theatre & Performance
Strange things happen on stage: An intelligent car becomes a criminal. An immortal mouse fights for a political say. The Digital President rules the world in a way that is extremely close to the people. In the game show „What makes you, you?“ new philosophical problems are posed in an attempt to solve old ones. Sometimes a brain is changed or a test person is atomized.
half past selbst schuld are back: colorful, spectacular, satirical and hilarious, the Düsseldorf cult formation around Ilanit Magarshak-Riegg and Sir ladybug beetle takes you into a world of puppet and shadow play, animation and music.
After „Kafka in Wonderland“ and „The Last Mortal“, „What Robots Need to Learn“ now concludes the „Wonderland Inc.“ trilogy. It is set in a future in which evolution has been overtaken by technology. The inventors of the stage comic pull out all the stops again and delight with satirical episodes, lurid news, confusing infographics and flashy advertising clips. And by the way, they present their first book „See the World Like a Human Being“ and the music album „30,000 Days“.
What is special about the performances of half past selber schuld, however, are not the visions of the future of the German-Israeli artist duo, but how they bring them to the playing surface. These self-proclaimed stage comics are visual and technical masterpieces that use analog tricks to depict the digital future. Rheinische Post, Clemens Victor Henle
