The first, quintessential, perfectly adorable robot of the 90ʼs. Intelligent, scratchy, capable of cleaning the house. Except that it couldnʼt talk or had a brain the size of a nail, but oh! So cute. Decade after decade, robots have improved, bent and jumped about on stage, digging out the coal and scrubbing the glass from windowsills. But in general, robots today just havenʼt got it right.

Robogeisha is part of the Amplify Berlin creative development program for emerging musicians at ACUD MACHT NEU and will be mentored by Phase Fatale during November 2020.

1:  I believe I have developed brain damage mixed with mild islamophobia after living 24 years in Turkey.
