This research presents the theatrical space – or "placemaking" – as a space inhabited by humans and non-humans (objects, shapes, bodies, and robots) that exist in an alternative post-digital world. The constant change of the action’s object invites the audience to adjust their interaction along the way. This work merges ideas of performance and installation, becoming a homeland, a place of utopia and philosophy, which seeks reflection on the relationship between art and technology.
