Des robots sur la scène, aspects du cyber-théâtre contemporain

Abstract : « We assume that the XXIst century will be the century of robots, as well as the XXeth century was the one of computers » , reveals Franck Bauchard. Yet robots don’t seem to have invaded our daily life, indeed we meet them in theatre. For some years now, Robots have appeared on stage, and in other variuos places, such as museums, public spaces (street), art exhibitions. Those new technological creatures divide into humanoïds and androïds, zoomorphic machines, and « pure » machines, that generally don’t refer to anything familiar. What does this theatre look like ? Whats does the actor become, when dropped, one more time, on a technological stage, but which he has to share, this time, with mobile intelligent creatures ? Last, how does the public react to such genuine tridimensional monsters that were only present in cinema or in littérature so far ?Our enlarged corpus, will allow us to to figure out the diversity of contemporanean cyber-creation, either « anthropo-mimetic or » « non-anthropo-mimetic. Then we will put the hypothesis that anthropo-mimetic cyber-theatre shows rigid, and narrow, so far as to endanger the theatrical act. Whereas the other proposal reveals audacious aesthetics, and renewed dramaturgies. This theatre questions and reinvents the relashionships between robots and humans, that priviledge equality and collaboration. Thus, in the representation process, actors coping with such autonomus and unpredictable technological robots gain spontanity and presence, whereas robots find themselves elevated to a new prestigious dimension : they acquire what we have called « scenic life ».
