"Uncanny valley" refers to a sense of unease experienced when an artificial image or a humanoid robot appears almost — but not 'quite' — human. Portraying a synthetic being in the process of becoming a human analogue, the play explores the question of how we are redefining what it means to be human in the 21st century.
SF Ballet Pointes of View (POV) Lecture Series
Feb 22, 6 pm | Program 03 - Frankenstein
Litquake, the Bay Area's literary festival and San Francisco Ballet co-present Frankenstein at the Ballet: Mary Shelley and Her "Hideous Progeny." Professor Ellen Peel from the Comparative and World Literature Department at SF State reflects on the origin of Frankenstein. Shelley was often asked, 'how I, then a young girl, came to think of...so very hideous an idea,' Peel will address that question by looking at cultural and scientific forces in her day, and by considering Shelley's early life. Peel will comment on how the novel has managed to play so powerfully on our wishes and fears for two centuries, becoming a myth continually reborn in new avatars, now including a ballet.
