In 1920, Karel Čapek wrote the play R.U.R., in which human-made robots take over the world and humans stop making babies. Almost 100 years later, Let’s Make A Lil’ Human That Looks Like You And Me examines current trends in humanoid robotics and human population. Science, sex, and classic Eastern European theater combine in an effort to understand what labor and life mean today.
