What happens when AI and algorithms meet with theater? What new possibilities arise? Which meanings are constituted? And how can co-creative processes between actors and artificial intelligence take place on stage? New York-based theater maker Annie Dorsen deals with precisely these questions in her work and is a pioneer at the intersection of theater and artificial intelligence.
Annie Dorsen was born in New York in 1973 and studied at Yale University and Yale School of Drama. She is one of the most influential theater makers of our time and the recipient of numerous prizes and scholarships. You can get an insight into her current play Prometheus Firebringer (2023) here.
