Yes/No/Maybe is a physical theatre performance that investigates the relationship between the computer language of binary code and the rich and colourful language of human dialogue.
A light switch is either on or off, there is a winner or a loser, you're asleep or awake, alive or dead. But then there is that bit in between where purples and oranges burst through the black and white.
Five performers step into the minds of Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, leap between the cogs of the chad machine and balance in the grey areas between the yes and no of the here and now. They equate bits, personalise punch machines and fall in love with digital screens.
Commissioned by Professor Gabriel Egan, artists Rosie Garton and Kerryn Wise have created a highly visual and playful work that blends art and science into a unique performance that promises to be an informative and entertaining theatre experience.
