Download the Mysterious Beauty of Math and Technology in “Code: Preludes”
Theater Ninjas (Cleveland’s nomadic theater company) has announced the world premiere of “Code: Preludes” that is billed as “an original theatrical experience inspired by the beauty of logic and math and the programmers who operate on the boundary between our messy human lives and the pristine world of symbols and equations that power modern technology”.
The work is taken from the real life experiences of Alan Turing as well as a number of programmers and is woven into a sensory interactive performance that unites theater with software in order to rekindle a sense of wonder over the power of mathematics as well as highlight those who encode our humanity into modern technology.
Artistic Director Jeremy Paul describes Code as "an ambitious project with topics that are massive and complex, beautiful and funny, fascinating and terrifying: math, computers programmers and infinity. But it's primarily about people, about the human side to tech and the desire we have to understand, to puzzle out and to create. This is going to be a deep plunge into a fantastic world, a theater experience unlike anything else you'll see all year."
Theater Ninjas is the “Gourmet Food Truck” of Cleveland Theater who travel from venue to venue (sometimes appearing in non-traditional locations) in order to bring a fresh look to the stories they wish to tell by creating fascinating worlds of theater where none existed before. Theater Ninjas mission is to always experiment and rethink what theater can be in regards to entertainment, art and out-of-the-ordinary experiences.
