ABOUT THE ART:
43 STAGES OF GRIEVING tells the story of a robot who is pregnant, and dying. Robots are not supposed to be able to get pregnant. And yet, our robot, Taya, is pregnant. As she tries to find someone / something to look after whatever she is pregnant with, she will move in with a human who is also dying. Together, they will in fact go through 43 stages of grieving. A comedy until it is not a comedy, this play is about the complicated future of death, but it is also about hope. Hope that robots will be nice, humans will be rational, and that no matter how far away we get from being ‘natural’, nature will find us all in the end.
Judson Arts Wednesdays continues the long tradition of arts ministry at Judson Memorial Church, a spiritual force in Greenwich Village for over 120 years, devoted to creative freedom, social justice, and progressive faith. From the acclaimed Judson Poets’ Theater and Judson Dance Theater to today’s Judson Arts Wednesdays (JAW) programming, Judson embraces the necessity of art in our lives and nurtures an uncensored environment for innovative expression.
