Project Description

2015. Teatronika: theatre for robots only

Teatronika was born as a competition for a special type of play writers… those that write for robots only!  The competition has seen the participation of hundreds of script-writers but only 4 made it to the stage.

On the 29th of November 2015, Teatronika premiered several theatrical pieces, with 4 Nao robots, including the winners of the Teatronika competition which ended last July at the Centro Cultural Contemporaneo de Barcelona. (photos by Miquel Taverna CCCB)
