About this Event

“The best sort of worker is the cheapest worker. The one that has the least needs.”

On an island off the coast of Europe, Rossum’s Universal Robots produce the ideal artificial workers: strong, tireless, without desire or emotion. But what will come of humanity when its labour is no longer needed? And are the “robots” as soulless as their creators think? Can there be redemption from the apocalypse of technology run amok?

An international hit on its debut in 1921, Čapek’s play is surprisingly relevant to today’s world of instability, greed and global technology companies. Disruptive technology, exploitation, revolution, love - R.U.R. has it all.
