Are we becoming machines? Are machines becoming too much like us? Or is there another possibility? Foundations is a play about technology, perspective, and love, involving physical theatre and puppetry.
"A factory above. A factory below. And between them, the unused foundations of a whole neighbourhood, rotting in the ground like concrete graves.
Meet MJ, an ordinary warehouse worker from the world above. Now meet Pins, an ordinary worker from the factory below, except that she’s a robot, and has never known what we think of as human.
They’re about to meet, and set a spark that could unravel worlds. If you listen closely, you might be able to start hearing the pounding from under the floor. And if you listen closer, you might notice that it begins to sound a lot like your heartbeat."
