The Shepherds’ Singularity

 

Angels! Artificial Intelligence! Animals Who Speak!

This Futuristic Play-with-Music Time-Travels to Bethlehem and Back Again.

 

Come On Over Ensemble Theater presents the world premiere of

THE SHEPHERDS' SINGULARITY, a collaboratively devised, physical theater infused, futuristic play-with-music featuring tales of hardship, terrible weather, time travel, technology, talking animals, miracles, angels, and singularities.

 

The Technological Singularity is near, and the citizens of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania are terrified that they will become obsolete in the post-singularity era. When a “technology expert” comes to calm their fears, he suddenly finds himself at the mercy of mysterious forces which sends him on a journey through time and space, to encounter medieval shepherds, super-intelligent sheep, an Angel, the uncanny valley, another town called Bethlehem, and the fear of being left behind.

 

Directed by Wanda Strukus in collaboration with the ensemble

 

Music Composed and Directed by Nate Tucker for hammered dulcimer, banjo, guitar, flute, and harmonica
