It wasn’t me is a newly written science fiction musical that raises questions about artificial intelligence, alternative worlds, religion, the future of the earth and what is actually real.
”I’d like to imagine God as some sort of mad scientist that programmed this dream-world that we live in. Because you know what? What we perceive as physical reality is actually a computer-generated simulation, like a super sophisticated videogame, created by someone very powerful, that some of us call God. Or as I always say: holy shit.”
Saga Björklund Jönsson and Niklas Rydén play two scientists who, with the help of artificial intelligence, are trying to create a new, better world. Playwright and director Nicola Bremer has collected quotes from articles, books and films along with texts created by AI software and dialogs generated by chat bots. The video is by Steffi Rehberg.
The project is a collaboration between NewOpera CO and The Mainstream with a team from Sweden, Germany and Italy.
