This weekend only, Theater Ninjas presents The Turing Machine, an original 'post-human metaphysical biography' about the life and legacy of Alan Turing: the brilliant pioneer of computer sciences.
In this one-man (that would be me!) show, a computer program believes it is the reincarnation of Turing and relives the complex contradictions of this singular genius's life, reflecting on his career, persecution, and influence on the modern age.
I co-wrote and star in this show, co-written and directed by Theater Ninjas Artistic Director, Jeremy Paul.
It's a tremendous honor to bring Alan Turing and his legacy to the stage, and to perform so many of the words that he wrote, himself. This is my first full solo piece! Feeling happy and grateful.
