Deep Godot: Onlineversion


Foto: Renata Chueire

With DEEP GODOT, Interrobang makes the ambivalences of artificial intelligence tangible for the audience! The performance collective develops and trains DEEP GODOT, an A.I. that offers individual age guidance for people from 15 to 100plus. Through the Smart Ageing program, DEEP GODOT gets to know people long before they reach the end of their lives, in order to better and more personally accompany, entertain, care for and prepare them for their death later in life.

After the successful live version, the audience now gets in touch with the AI DEEP GODOT from the comfort of their own home. Equipped with a stable internet connection and headphones, one communicates with DEEP GODOT on one’s own PC/laptop/tablet, negotiates personal, medical and philosophical topics and plays through different scenarios.

Through the performance, Interrobang explores the limits and possibilities of individual agency and social solidarity in a world increasingly shaped by A.I.. What is the relationship between profit-oriented promises of progress and emancipatory potentials? At the same time, communication with DEEP GODOT enables a personal and poetic confrontation with one’s own transience.
