Future Bodies


  • Unlimited Theatre

Project summary

The ‘upgraded human’ is a popular concept. Scientific research is advancing at an ever-increasing pace in fields such as cognitive psychopharmacology and neuroscience, while in the cultural sphere, the bestseller Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari considers the rise of artificial intelligence, human enhancement and data mining and how it will shape the future of the human species. 

Future Bodies is a theatre production about the ethical, political and cultural implications of human enhancement. It is a collaboration between Unlimited Theatre, RashDash and three scientists. The play will see artists being mediators in the dialogue between the science community and audiences. 
This project will broaden the ways we engage with the public about the issues of human upgrading.
