Meet Geminoid F – the star of Seinendan Theatre Company’s upcoming production of Sayonara, an internationally renowned theatre performer in her own right, and an android. Alongside Canadian actress Bryerly Long, Geminoid F will breathe (artificial?) life into Sayonara at the Arts Centre this month, spinning the tale of a young girl facing a terminal illness and the relationship she develops with her tender, robotic carer.

A finely formed and internationally acclaimed short play, Sayonara lingers on questions of mortality – on what it means for humans to confront death, and on what it means for robots to be alive. Each performance is followed by a Q&A session with writer-director Oriza Hirata and Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro from Osaka University’s Robotics Laboratory. Tickets from $20.

WHEN: Friday/Saturday, 24/25 August (Fri 6.30pm; Sat 2pm and 5pm)
WHERE: Arts Centre Melbourne, 100 St Kilda Road, Melbourne
