TECH by Firma MES from The Hague consists of three solos, each exploring the relationship between man and technology. TECH I is a monologue in which Roos Eijmers [1985] takes a closer look at the hyper-intelligent domestic robot Alice. What if Alice surpasses the human? TECH II is a music-driven performance in English by Lindertje Mans [1986]. It tackles the life of Robin, a sex robot: her birth in a factory, her first time in use, her recycling. Can we have intimate relationships with machines? TECH III is a stage adaptation of Stephen Knight’s cinematic masterpiece Locke. Daan van Dijsseldonk [1986] portrays a man who tries to keep his life from crashing to a standstill during a nocturnal drive. Handsfree, heart-bound.
