Thought Experiments on the Question of Being Human: Genetics and Synthetic Biology
Thought Experiments on the Question of Being Human is a multi-year project where each year we team scientists with playwrights who together create short works that pose questions about the human consequences of science and technology.
This year we invited four scientists working in the fields of Genetics and Synthetic Biology and teamed each scientist with a local Seattle playwright. Their collaborations have led to the creation of four intriguing short plays, each asking the question: "How might current and possible future innovations in the fields of genetics and synthetic biology change what it means to be human?
Each evening includes staged readings of the plays, followed by a scientist-led conversation, where the audience can explore the questions and issues raised by the plays about the impact that genetics and synthetic biology may have on their lives.
The plays are:
"Editors" by Holly Arsenault, directed by Susanna Burney
"Nature's Frivolity!" by Kelly Mak, directed by Roy Arauz
"Anomie" by Courtney Meaker, directed by Teresa Thuman
"Solace" by Bryan Willis, directed by Tyrone Brown
