PAL: Your AI Care Companion
Citizens Theatre Young Co.
Do you feel overwhelmed? Burnt out? Anxious all the time?
Then you need PAL.
A psychotherapeutic algorithm designed to complement the health care system, created to learn and grow with you, PAL is your companion, PAL is your future.
Invented in 2022, by young care worker Nikki, PAL started off as a simple app made to alleviate loneliness, social anxiety and depression, a care-bot if you like. Now, it’s 2044, the NHS has collapsed, and PAL is everywhere.Listening, watching and growing, as a dependency on automation quickly escalates.
Set in a dystopian world where natural resources are running out, observation has become monitoring and the government is choosing profit over people, perhaps a PAL isn’t what we need, but is there a way back?
This production takes place at Tramway in the smaller performance space (T4). Capacity is limited.
