Sans Everything” explores a time so far in the future that humans have been replaced by disembodied intelligence. Set aboard a ship that invites the experience of traveling through the human life cycle, one embodied AI gets stuck on “As You Like It.” The resulting feud asks, how is humanity best expressed: through what we can do or who we are?
“Sans Everything” is made in collaboration with Strange Attractor and Philadelphia’s Lightning Rod Special, and was developed in Philadelphia, Providence, New Orleans, and Boston. Stage Manager: Nicky Mariani, Lightning Design: Steve McLellan, Sound Design: Andy Russ, Costume Design: Sara Ossana
