Have you ever been caught in a situation where you’re arguing with the GPS? How about cursing your car or accusing your phone of not understanding you? What exactly do we expect from technology, what do machines think of us? Can we create the perfect machine, while being imperfect ourselves and how valid are Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics today?

These are some of the questions raised in “Machines are Bitches” - the latest play by Zdrava Kamenova and Gergana Dimitrova based on an idea by Ivo Stamenov OttO. 

The play introduces us to Gerda, who has just decided to hit the road, leave everything behind, and try to get to a place of her dreams. Her only companions are machines, whose good intentions and capacity for empathy has been long put into question by humankind.

Zdrava Kamenova and Alexander Mitrev take the audience through several dynamic, hilarious and meandering hours of Gerda’s life, starring a GPS, a phone, a car.
