In collaboration with the Centro de Experimentación del Teatro Colón (CETC), Music of the Americas presents the U.S. premiere of the multimedia monodrama Inteligencia Artificial, by Miguel Galperin and Ignacio Llobera. The piece is based on the reflections of an ordinary man, fascinated by artificial intelligence, and takes the form of a monologue. The sets, designed by visionary Brazilian collective SuperUber, juxtapose man's temporality with the universe of memory, data processing, and the enduring legacy of artificial intelligence, which draws a comparison between the domain of the organic and artificial. Starring Argentine actor Marcelo Delgado, the nonlinear narrative is divided into two stages: the first focuses on the central character's relationship with time, and the second on his relationship with the multiple identities he crafted in the artificial world. Throughout the work, videos are projected onto suspended translucent screen modules, visually expanding the world of the narrator.
