Robot Dreams


Robots have long been among us. More and more they appear in our daily lives. Not only do they build our cars, they also drive them. Justin prepares tea, the Dustbot collects the trash. Don8R collects donations. Saya is a teacher and Care-O-Bot works with the elderly. With his face Kansei expresses six fundamental emotions. HULC carries weapons or provisions through warzones and R2B explores the moon. Turbo Pascal establishes himself domestically as new housemate with the Robots. Somewhere between science-fiction-sitcom, chamber play and ghost train, they appear within scenarios of a human-robot household. Why does Frank so willingly serve? Since when is Veit programmed to constantly evolve? What are the new housemates concealing? And what happens in the night when everyone is asleep?
