Lukáš Šimon a Anton Eliaš: ROBO ERECTUS
I AM A ROBOT
I don’t smoke, don’t drink, don’t get old, don’t require any attention and don’t have any feelings. I am a robot. And a nuclear bomb has changed my life… it’s quiet. Just dust and rubble everywhere in a barren landscape. No signs of life anywhere. The last two survivors are in a robot factory. A long journey awaits them – without emotion, destination or assistance. A journey into a world where they have never been.
A journey full of discovery, exploration… and contemplation. Where should they go if there’s nobody to show them the way? Watch their story unfold in this original movement performance created by Lukáš Šimon and Anton Eliaš.
