American Theatre: The Dangers of AI Intoxication (Prometheus Firebringer)

“Can theatre artists use the tools of Big Tech to dismantle its influence?”

“The piece riffs on the lost final play of Aeschylus’s Prometheus trilogy as a way of thinking about the relationship between technology and power. On one side of the stage, everything is made by commercially available AI products: A set of AI-generated theatre masks, animated by AI-generated computer voices, perform scenes made by GPT-3.5 (the same model that runs ChatGPT). On the other side of the stage, I give a talk that reflects on some of the questions these models raise.”–Annie Dorsen, writer, director, and performer of Prometheus Firebringer
