The year is 2080. "iTMRW," the love story of Robert and his android partner, Jenny, unfolds against the backdrop of a world where advanced technology is both a source of and a “cure” for human alienation: advertisements come in the form of “pop-up thoughts,” entire cities float on islands of trash, female forms are purchased and discarded at will, and aristocrats live in a state of debauchery and despair. The piece takes its title from iTMRW (pronounced “I, Tomorrow”), the mega-corporation that produces and sells every single product known to humankind. Despite societal chaos, the human spirit persists in its quest for love.

"iTMRW," a dance-theater piece set to a live performance of a futuristic concept album by Providence art-pop trio, Arc Iris, features contemporary dance and performance art by HDC Dance Ensemble.

Alex Schneps, events and programming manager at WBUR CitySpace, will introduce the show.
