Michaelmas Week 3
Trurl and Klapaucius are two of the greatest inventors the galaxy has ever seen. However, unparalleled as they are, there often comes a point where their creations tend to get the better of them...
A new adaptation inspired by the short stories of Stanisław Lem, Fables for Robots is an assorted medley of nuts and bolts, presented in the shiniest chromium physical theatre format for your viewing pleasure. Join Trurl and Klapaucius as they set off on a genre-spanning journey, from sci-fi to philosophy to surrealist comedy, and race through the universe in series of self-edifying quests. Tremble before the rambunctious robotic monarch King Krool; gasp in awe at the intergalactic intransigence of Pirate Pugg; weep at the beatific musical stylings of Trurl's electronic bard; hearken back to a time when we still dreamed of a future full of promise, wonder, and tinfoil spaceships.
We present to you - Fables for Robots.
