Karel Čapek was one of the first people who thought of a potential threat if machine-robot inventions happen too fast or without a regulation. Did he predict the threats of the 21st century? Or… are robots no danger for us? So far, robots can perform many quite easy tasks, but we want to challenge them!
To celebrate the centenary of invention of the word “robot” we want to know if a robot can write a theatre play. Do you think artificial intelligence is able to create an enjoyable theatre script? Can a robot become a playwright like its own father Karel Čapek 100 years ago? We will find out the answers on 26 February 2021!
Watch our live stream of the first play ever written by artificial intelligence and a discussion with project authors!

After the premiere, we will allow public to see the play online for some time. And then – if COVID-19 allows it – we will bring the production to the stage of Švanda theatre in Prague. The future of the project is partially open but we will continue with the scientific research and then a new play will be announced in 2022.
Why are we doing this? Most people do not know what today’s robots are capable of. Sometimes they fear robots’ abilities which are not real and sometimes they do not want to admit that we are surrounded by robots almost everywhere. We want to start a conversation about what robots of today can and cannot do and where they should and should not be used.
