Event

Uncanny Valley by Thomas Gibbons
Presented by Actors Collaborative Toledo and directed by David Nelms, "Uncanny Valley" draws on current research in artificial intelligence and robotics, UNCANNY VALLEY charts the relationship between Claire, a neuroscientist, and Julian, a nonbiological human. As Julian is born a few body parts at a time over the course of the play, Claire teaches him how to be as human as possible: mirroring peoples speech, engaging in small-talk, playing a musical instrument. Their deepening friendship and Julians growing humanity lead to the revelations of an unhealed sorrow in Claires personal life and, ultimately, the purpose for which Julian has been created. UNCANNY VALLEY explores the painful divide between creator and creation, the inherent unpredictability of consciousness, and how we are redefining what it means to be human in the twenty-first century.

"cerebrally challenging... a fascinating scenario."                           Washington Post.
"a futuristic...techno take on the Pinocchio story..."               NY Times.
