Description
Bot Party is an ensemble blend of comedy theater, magic and tech in an attempt to make robots funny while keeping humans relevant. Improvisers and idiots armed with arduinos and circuit boards play games and keep things sloppy alongside bots that are otherwise programmed with the surgical certainty guaranteed to kill a good joke. We hold that machines designed solely for utility can be re-purposed for a very human uselessness that approaches play.

bzzzz….. The semi-autonomous programs and benevolent captor systems of Bot Party have a bunch of fun spontaneous suggestions lined up for improv bits, and they can’t wait to adjust in real time to your dynamic human responses! Come see the John Henrys duke it out against the Deep Blues in a head-to-head joke bonanza somewhat pre-programmed to have you rolling in the aisles!….. zzzzb [end]

“The world Schlichting reveals is full of clever kinetic asides, streamlined beauty, hints of mischief and thoughtful juxtapositions.” —Star TribuneNamed Best Choreographer in 2013 by City Pages and steadily gaining national attention, Chris Schlichting creates beautifully designed, meticulously constructed dance worlds combining movement, visual art, and music. For Stripe Tease he collaborates with rock/pop guitarist Jeremy Ylvisaker (Andrew Bird) and his band Alpha Consumer, which includes Mike Lewis and JT Bates, whose repetition of musical phrasing is a perfect foil for Schlichting’s movement art. The collaboration also features Minnesota-based visual artist Jennifer Davis, whose collages and paintings strike a magical balance between childlike playfulness and dark yearnings.

Crafting a deeply satisfying mix of patterns and set structures, large-scale spectacle and delicate intimacy, recurrence and surprise, Schlichting’s newest work Stripe Tease embraces and slyly subverts dance history.
