“A robot walked into the theatre…” is the virtual kick-off of Acting Like a Robot: Theatre as Testbed for the Robot Revolution. This project brings together experts from the theatre and robotics for four years of joint explorations. The short film was made for virtual festival SPRING on screen.

Acting Like a Robot is a collaboration between Utrecht University, Ulrike Quade Company, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and SPRING Performing Arts Festival, and is financially supported by NWO (SMART Culture CISC.KC.205) and Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, through an innovation grant issued to Ulrike Quade Company.
