In 2445, the robots rebelled and were barely defeated: 20 years later, the surviving humans live in an aggressively anti-technological society, relegated to lives of wasteland scavenging or service to a military protectorate. Into this wakes C-12, a lone nannybot who must traverse the wastes in search of her purpose in a world without machines.
About the Company: AntiMatter Collective
Necessarily ephemeral, theater is not matter (though it may matter, we hope). ANTIMATTER COLLECTIVE was formed in order to excavate a new kind of theater that confronts the chasms between art and entertainment, the comic and the tragic, the squalid and the transcendent. The foundation of our process is the conviction that the collective intelligence and ideas of the group, when properly harnessed, will always lead to richer work than those of the individual. Periods of discussion, development, and play challenge everyone involved to map out the depths of their initial impulses and push beyond. This leads to work that is smart and subtle without sacrificing its visceral punch and sense of pure fun.
