Machine Yearning Machine Yearning



In a lab on a spaceship orbiting desecrated earth, two scientists run a failing experiment in procreation. A reckoning with their abuses and a lab accident leads to the birth of a fury. Alecto is the artificial-intelligence angel of unceasing anger, the psycho-pomp of the modern male era. Machine Yearning is a devised physical theatre piece which centers the question, how does exploiting others lead to alienation from our own humanity? Our collaborative devising company is comprised of students from theatre schools across the US, who have joined together to workshop this play as our debut Fringe project.

This show was part of our Edinburgh Fringe 2023 Edinburgh Fringe Programme
