“i-Obsolete”, de l’atelier anglophone de théâtre de l’UNIGE


What would our mobile phones say to us, if they could talk back?


Asimov asked this question about robots in “i-Robot”.


We asked this question about phones in “i-Phone”.


Then we realised that Apple found that title before we did.


And maybe told us a little too much about their product, in doing so…


So, in the end, we’ve gone with “i-Obsolete”.


On the weekend of the 17th of March 2023, at Uni Mail MS180, Geneva, the University of Geneva’s English-speaking theatre troupe will be presenting a play that we’d love to share with you.


We’ve embarked on a multidisciplinary theatrical exploration of our relationship with our phones, and the results have been surprising and beautiful.


Half an hour of poetry, music, dance and other surprises, all composed, choreographed and written specifically for this play.


Entry is free, and a hat will be passed around at the end of the play.


Imagine having somebody who’s there to keep you company every single night before sleeping. Somebody who knows you so well that they can predict your next action with extreme accuracy. Somebody who knows all your secrets, what you are interested in, who you are interested in. Somebody who can read your mind. Somebody you’ve been sharing your whole life with….  Do you have such a presence in your life? If you think you don’t, just check your pockets… you’ll find a small box with a screen that knows you far better than your lovers, much better than your mum. What would it say if it could speak to you?  Come and find out on the weekend of the 17th of March in MS180, Uni Mail
