Salon Komische Oper
May 11, 2015, 7:30–9 p.m.
What makes a human being human? Can a machine be transformed into a human-like being? Will machines eventually be able to relieve humans not only of manual, but also of social tasks? To mark the preparations for robot Myon’s participation in the premiere of My Square Lady at the Komische Oper Berlin, the salon deals with these technological, social, and ultimately philosophical questions. What has Myon learned since its first visit to the opera house? Is it ready for its big day at the end of the season?
