ONE ACTRESS ALONE ON STAGE, WITH ONLY HER IPHONE FOR COMPANY
Siri is the personal assistant integrated into all Apple devices.
Intrigued by the prowess of this whimsical yet relentlessly logical muse, Maxime Carbonneau and Laurence Dauphinais present a performance where randomness reigns supreme. On the fly, they transform Siri, the most famous artificial intelligence in the world, into a formidable actress in her own right.
In a quasi-mathematical game of Q & A, Laurence employs ingenious strategies to encourage her virtual partner to unveil her true self. In so doing, we witness her own
origins as one of the first children in Montreal to be born of artificial insemination
in the early 80s. Realities are shattered. Siri is a metaphysical pilgrimage, a fundamental exploration of our own human programming.
