“Dorsen is a key explorer and theorist of theatrical form … human experience co-mingles and is increasingly altered by algorithms and artificial intelligence.”
—Tom Sellar, introduction to Algorithmic Theater
Accompanying the Retrospective, Algorithmic Theater is a collection of essays and dialogues by and about Annie Dorsen, edited by Tom Sellar.
The book includes essays by Dorsen herself; essays about Dorsen’s work by Miriam Felton-Dansky, Jacob Gallagher-Ross, Sarah Bay-Cheng, W.B. Worthen, and Johannes Birgfeld; and transcripts of interviews with Dorsen by Alexis Soloski, the creative team for A Piece of Work, Miriam Felton-Dansky, Tom Sellar, and Nick Hallett.
Free copies of the book will be available at each performance at Bryn Mawr College.
