Simulation artist Lawrence Lek and Hyperdub artist / founder Kode9 present a live audio-visual show inspired by themes of full automation and post-work utopias set in the shadow of the existential threats posed by artificial intelligence. The Nøtel is a fully automated, luxury hotel in a post-scarcity world in which the only thing in short supply is humans. The performance guides the audience on a first-person/drone tour through its uncanny architecture. In sprawling chambers, deep within slick glass corridors, they encounter warped spaces, quantum clouds, gravitational pools, dancing voids and holograms of the dead. 120rmb pre-sale, 150rmb on the door.
