Thought Experiments on the Question of Being Human: Prosthetics and Neural Enhancements
Thought Experiments on the Question of Being Human is a multi-year project where each year we team five scientists with five playwrights who together create short works that pose questions about the human consequences of science and technology.

This year we invited five scientists working at the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering at the University of Washington and teamed each scientist with a local Seattle playwright. Their collaborations have led to the creation of five intriguing short plays, each asking the question: "How might current and possible future innovations in the fields of prosthetics and neural enhancements 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 prosthetics and neural enhancements may have on their lives.

The plays are:  

"Closed Loop" by Rose Cano; directed by Nikki Mejia

"Brain Trust" by Rachel Atkins; directed by Dan Morris

"Calibration" by Elizabeth Heffron; directed by Paul Budraitis

"Truth and Lies" by Roger Tang; directed by Sara Porkalob

"Corner Window" by Vincent Delaney; directed by Agastya Kohli
