Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

From the novel by Philip K. Dick
Adapted by Edward Einhorn
Music by Henry Akona

World Premiere

An adaptation of Philip K. Dick's sci-fi classic about androids and a bounty hunter, Rick Deckard, who loves them/loves to kill them. The book inspired the film Blade Runner, but this adaptation returns to the original novel's ideas about a post-apocalyptic world seeking resurrection through the rediscovery of empathy. The production uses innovative video techniques to blur the lines between humanity and technology, finding the soul within the machine.
