Marcus Du Sautoy And Victoria Gould: I Is A Strange Loop

March

21

Thursday

From the creative ensemble behind Complicits sensational A Disappearing Number, this two-hander unfolds to reveal an intriguing take on mortality, consciousness and artificial life.

Alone in a cube that glows in the darkness, X is content with his infinite universe and abstract thought. But then Y appears, insisting they interact, exposing him to her sensory and physical existence. Each begins to hanker after what the other has until a remarkable thing happens involving a strange loop.

Featuring acting mathematicians Marcus du Sautoy and Victoria Gould both stellar contributors to recent Complicit hits I is a strange loop is part of a Barbican series investigating consciousness through music, machines and the mind. Led by Du Sautoy, who takes inspiration from the 40th anniversary of Douglas Hofstadters seminal book, Gdel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, the triptych finds links between systems and creativity, technology and humanity, using theatre, music and art.
