Oriza Hirata

Sayonara ver.2


    • T2G – Théâtre de Gennevilliers
      December 16 to December 20

    What differentiates a robot from a human being? Not much, according to the playwright and stage director Oriza Hirata. For his new pieces, he developed a robot, called a “geminoid”, whose moves appear particularly human-like. The two plays include robots performing roles in the family circle, raising questions on human bonds and the future of our society.
