Thomas Melle invites you to an evening lecture on instability. For “Uncanny Valley”, Stefan Kaegi (Rimini Protokoll) made a copy of Thomas Melle (“Die Welt im Rücken”) in the form of a humanoid robot. What happens when a person is copied? Does the original person get to know himself better through his electronic double? Technology is taking over all sorts of menial work, and is now being tested on stage: What if a humanoid robot performs the lecture instead of the writer? Would the robot become a performer whose facial expressions, gestures and language trigger empathy – but then, empathy with whom?
