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 is a 90-minute multimedia science fiction production that combines the music of Arc Iris’ upcoming futuristic concept album with videography and the contemporary dance theater of HDC Dance Company, coming soon to the immersive setting of the Charles Hayden Planetarium. The Museum of Science joins Arc Iris for a behind-the-scenes live streaming event that explores the creative inspiration and process behind the show, introduces members of the artistic team and cast, previews exclusive clips from the show, and discusses the future of the piece as the team re-imagines iTMRW for a run in the one-of-a-kind venue of the Planetarium.
