This fall, in collaboration with Media Art Xploration (MAX), the Museum of Science presents a one-night-only staging of the groundbreaking new performance from NUUM Collective, Doppelgänger!
Debuted in New York City at the MAXlive festival, the NUUM Collective creates an AI-powered duet between a performer and herself. The piece explores isolation and connection as performer NiNi Dongnier dances in real-time with her doppelgänger under the influence of artificial intelligence.
Following the performance, leading public interest technologist Afua Bruce, author of The Tech That Comes Next: How changemakers, technologists, and philanthropists can build an equitable world, joins the creative team for a conversation at the intersection of art, movement, and artificial technology.
This program is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
Separate tickets required
Cost: $0, Free with Pre-Registration
