It is with great regret that we see ourselves forced to cancel the entire performance series of Carmen. In this article, we wish to share with you the reasons behind this decision. All ticket holders will be contacted in the coming days for a refund of their tickets.

Homo Roboticus


Should we fear robots?
If it has AI, does a robot have a creative mind?
Will there be a purple bag for robotic waste?

In an increasingly robotized society, we explore and discover new technologies. Although robotics and artificial intelligence can help both humans and nature, they often generate fear because they threaten to overpower us. History teaches us that technology has the power to strengthen economic growth and transform societies. More than ever, this will be the case with the emerging robotics and artificial intelligence. The applications are ubiquitous: from robots in the factories to the conversion of people into cyborgs, from self-driving vehicles to killerbots.

What can you expect from the event Homo Roboticus? A program consisting of dance performances, inspiring presentations, artistic interventions and demonstrations. The event will be held in English

The event Homo Roboticus is organised by the VUB. La Monnaie welcomes this initiative and provides its grand room to host this exceptional event.
