Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series presents A Piece of Work by Annie Dorsen

September 9 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$5 – $5300

This September, Bryn Mawr College Performing Arts Series will present the first career retrospective of theater artist Annie Dorsen titled Algorithmic Theater. The retrospective, supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, is part of a residency advancing Dorsen’s work and examining the consequences of digital communications through theater.

Mixing live performance with algorithms and interfaces, A Piece of Work flips the switch between man and machine in a digital version of Hamlet for a post-humanist age. The spectators are absorbed in a swirl of connections amongst memory, language, and technology, implicating both the past and future of theater itself. New scenes, songs, scores, and visuals emerge from an intricate and ingeniously programmed web of technology that uses Shakespeare’s original text as data.
