Happiness, clarity of mind and everlasting life are within your grasp if you follow the word of Ray. Come tweet, and open your consciousness to the cloud as preacher Nic Turcotte proclaims the prophetic wisdom of our father Ray. Join your fellow Singulatarians to prepare for the coming Singularity where technology will save us from our biological shortcomings and we shall transcend to purer forms in the cloud #ThanksBeToRay.
#ThanksBeToRay is an immersive performance that places spectators smack dab in the middle of the cult of technology - quite literally. Satirically exploring the controversial ideas of Ray Kurzweil (Google’s Director of Engineering), Plato’s Cave, artificial intelligence and religion the performance provokes questions about our deepening relationship with ever improving technologies. Bring your own drinks to talk over, this dark comedy promises to spark post-show conversations on robots, iPads and the meaning of life.
