In Theatre

In Theatre was an interactive pop-up installation which explored how AI and robotics will revolutionise surgery now and in the future. In Theatre ran from 17 October - 6 November 2022 at 28 Brick Lane, London, E1 6RF

Imagine a future in which your medical scans are read by Artificial Intelligence, your surgery is planned by a computer and your surgeon is a four-armed robot with superpowers. In Theatre, was an accessible, interactive pop-up installation from WEISS and The Liminal Space that explored how ground breaking innovations such as these could benefit patients in the future. Over the 3-weeks that the pop-up installation was open, we welcomed over 2000 people to see the project.
