Writing copy can be hard, especially when you’re not doing your show for another six months. Let’s face it, this show could change, the world could change… everything could change. Ali (of CPT associate artists Barrel Organ) and Josh (of Powder Keg) have been wanting to make a show about robots for a while now, but Josh kept falling in love with the robots they were researching. Not in a “Josh wants to fuck robots” kind of way. More of a, Josh wants a robot best friend to go on trips with. Ali thought this was interesting. So they thought they’d make a show about it.
Then a robot drowned itself.
Josh felt sad.
Then that same robot started harrassing homeless communities.
Josh felt confused.
Ali and Josh thought this would be the show.
Steve is a work-in-progress performance.
