Outlines Part I –


Where Shakespeare + Ai Collide

R+J RMX is an extraordinary experience in which a group of performers - with the help of an audience and Story AI Technology - take Shakespeare’s well-loved play and generate new story possibilities, in real time.

Outlines is a two-part event which brings leading technologists together with boundary-pushing artists to rethink the future of performance. Designed to connect physical and digital worlds, Outlines features artists embracing and disrupting digital platforms and technology to deliver new forms of live performance. Part II – Apotheosis will be staged in the Utzon Room on Sunday 30 May, at 9pm.

Can a group of dancers, and their audience, use story AI to find a better ending for Romeo + Juliet?

See story differently...

Artificial Intelligence is now sophisticated enough to write poetry and have simple dialogue with humans - but do we really want it to? And more specifically… do we want AI as a collaborator in our own creativity? How can we maintain our creative sovereignty with increasingly powerful AI at our door? What is the role of machines in the creative process? Masters, servants, or just a different set of tools? This show explores these ideas.

Omelia is a revolutionary new AI technology, built for game engines and Hollywood, that can generate a large number of variations on a script. Together with some of the best dancers and performance creatives in Australia, Omelia will co-create a performance in front of an audience and allow us to reflect on the power of new technology and how it will influence our creativity and the future of performance

Sky Blue Mythic
26 May 2021 - 29 May 2021
Reality has always been augmented—by the limits of our human perception. Sky Blue Mythic stands at a threshold of cascading horizons. An avatar is adrift in an unknowable but familiar setting, where worlds loom, times loop, gestures distill and meanings distort. An interface of flesh searching for new ways of being, Sky Blue Mythic sees the body alienated, and the alien embodied. An ethereal thriller that highlights the presence and absence between worlds, Sky Blue Mythic is a recalibration of the ways we know dance, the body, and time.
