Marianna Simmett’s “GORGON” Stares Down Contemporary AI-Anxiety

Combining video, dance, and a flute quartet, Marianna Simmett‘s opera GORGON opens at Hebbel am Ufer (HAU) in Berlin. Director Simmett’s narrative weighs “distresses and transformations” brought on by AI (tech writ large) by teaming up its namesake wailing mythic creature with a bored doughnut store employee. Technologist Moisés Horta Valenzuela puts the live flautists in conversation with AI-generated sound, and Holly Herndon‘s voice model Holly+ also makes a cameo.
